The news is out: [Health officials in Kansas on Tuesday confirmed a 50-year-old woman died from severe respiratory illness related to vaping, making her the sixth fatality nationwide.
“The patient had a history of underlying health issues and was hospitalized with symptoms that progressed rapidly,” according to Kansas State Epidemiologist Dr. Farah Ahmed.
A report released last week from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said no evidence of infectious diseases has been identified in the 450 cases of vaping-related lung disease that have been documented. Patients report similar exposures and symptoms according to the CDC, “Therefore lung illnesses are likely associated with a chemical exposure. However, it is too early to pinpoint a single product or substance common to all cases.”]
Why is it so damn hard to put human life before money. People are dying, yet vaping is legal, so are cigarettes. If this 50 year old woman didn’t know at her age this crap was bad, oh well.
