    Very sad news. However, one must keep in mind that vaping is a Risk Reduction tool, not Risk Elimination. There are risks involved in vaping, but so far shown to be far lees than smoking.

    There will always be sensitivities and allergies, but this affects a very small minority of the population.

    If vaping in its entirety were to be banned because of this low level people presenting with adverse reactions, they might as well ban all medication as all medication carries sensitivity and allergy warnings.

    I have stopped reading every article. It just makes me angry and sad of the whole corruption of the whole media. Not saying that they are bought or anything. But the journalists are distorting the truth just to make their click quota for the month. The more people who read their articles, the better it looks for the bosses. Regardless of the contents.

    I have been vaping now for 7 years. I have to have a pretty full on medical for my job every 2 years. The last one was last month. Im 43 years old. Resting heart rate 47, cholesterol 4.2, blood sugar 2.8, blood pressure 117/75. Doc says I should hit triple digits lol.

    I train a few days a week and generally try to eat fairly healthy. Never cough or short of breath.

    It will take a lot to convince me that vaping is in any way comparable to smoking cigarettes as far as health goes.

    I agree @Hooked , and with @Adephi and @Tai as well, we know it’s not 100% safe. Even the Specialist Physician and Neurologist could not fault me vaping while hospitalized, after hourly checks vaping one day and not the next. No definitive difference in vitals detected, so both happy. Went from not being able to climb 14 stairs without resting half way up, to 87% lung capacity, almost same as “ normal “ person, although my lungs are “older” than me due to smoking.

    What gets me however is the following quotes:
    • from "very preliminary studies" , (understandable, but speculation then)
    • a "very small sample size", (could be)
    • while the cholesterol study couldn't draw a direct cause-and-effect relationship. (So utter speculation)
    • It's an association, but you can't say which is coming first," (So utter speculation)
    If it’s not been proven to be so, why start of with a headline like this article has, it’s pure speculation. It just seems to me that every doctor on this planet now wants to be in the news and linked with how bad vaping is, and I cringe because of some of the statements made. Heck, just read the info sheet on some of the pills that are prescribed if you want a sleepless night, but at least that is factual, at least I hope so.

    I’m starting to also skip these articles, never seen so many supposed intellectuals shovel so much sh1t in such a short time, and some/most of them are clueless on the subject.
