According to reports from CBS News, teens all across the country are being hospitalized for lung damage related to vaping. The first cases were reported in July 2019 and the numbers continue to rise. As the popularity of products like JUUL increases, concerns about lung problems and other e-cig related consequences go up as well.
Wisconsin’s Department of Health Services confirmed 12 cases of severe lung damage in patients between their teenage years and 30s – all of whom vaped. 13 other cases, including older patients in their 50s experiencing lung damage from vaping, are being investigated.
