For weeks, numerous public health agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), issued dire warnings of an “Outbreak of Lung Injury Associated with the Use of E-Cigarette, or Vaping, Products.”
For far too long, CDC and several other public health agencies have been telling the general public that vaping is very, very dangerous — possibly deadly. Is this true? In short, “No.”
For some reason, these government agencies have misled the American people. In fact, these agencies have purposefully led the public to believe that legal, regulated vaping cartridges that contain nicotine are as dangerous as illegal, unregulated vaping products that contain THC. This conflation promotes the false belief that vaping is, in and of itself, harmful — when in fact, vaping is a much safer alternative to smoking tobacco.
