  • Why E-Cigarettes Are So Dangerous


    Nearly two dozen people—mostly young adults—have now been hospitalized with severe breathing difficulties as a result of vaping。


    According to NBC News, a total of 22 cases have been reported: four in Minnesota, 12 in Wisconsin, and six in Illinois—up from 14 reported cases in Wisconsin and Illinois in early August.


    Even more concerning: Doctors don't know for sure what exactly is causing these hospitalizations. Per NBC News, it's unclear what type of e-cigarette devices the people were using, what they were inhaling1, and where they purchased the devices or e-liquids in the first place.


    In an August press release from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WDHS), the admitted patients experienced symptoms like shortness of breath, fatigue2, chest pain, cough, nausea3, and weight loss—and NBC News notes that four patients in Wisconsin were hospitalized with what they initially4 thought was pneumonia5. The department said that while the severity varied6 among patients, some cases were so bad that they require breathing assistance.


    One patient, Wisconsin man in his mid-20s, was even put in a medically-induced coma7 as a result of lung damage from vaping, according to Fox 6 Now, a Wisconsin-based news channel. (It's believed, however, that specific incident may have been caused by a vape cartridge8 containing THC—the main psychoactive compound in marijuana; a trend that hasn't been seen in the other Wisconsin and Illinois cases).

    根据威斯康星州新闻频道Fox 6 Now的报道,威斯康星州一位25岁的年轻患者由于抽电子烟导致肺部受损,而被医生诱导昏迷。(然而,也可能是因为电子烟筒中含有四氢大麻酚所致——这是大麻中的主要精神活性物质;但在威斯康星州和伊利诺伊州的其他住院案例中,并未发现这一趋势)。

    "Vaping among teens has increased dramatically over the last several years," Illinois Department of Public Health Director Dr。 Ngozi Ezike wrote in a press release。 While the short- and long-term effects of vaping are still being researched, these recent hospitalizations heighten the need for parents talk with their teens about vaping and for both to understand the consequences and potential dangers of vaping。

    伊利诺伊州公共卫生部主任恩戈齐·埃齐克(Ngozi Ezike)博士在一份新闻稿中写道:“过去几年里,抽电子烟的青少年人数急剧增加。”虽然研究员仍在研究抽电子烟的短期/长期影响,但近期的住院事件强调了父母与孩子谈论电子烟的必要性,此外,父母和孩子都应了解抽电子烟的后果和潜在危险。

    Of course, the Midwest isn't alone in this vaping increase: According to a 2018 report from the surgeon general, more than 3.6 million U.S. youth, including 1 in 5 high school students and 1 in 20 middle school students, use e-cigarettes regularly. Unfortunately, teens are even more likely to reap the consequences of e-cigarettes than adults.
