CDC Releases New Vaping Statistics

WASHINGTON – Vaping is becoming more lethal every day in America, at least 19 people have now died from vaping-related illnesses.

The CDC says it’s received reports of more than 1,000 lung injury cases.

According to the CDC, youth cigarette use is down, but e-cigarette popularity among kids is growing.

The report shows as of September 24th there have been more than 800 patients with lung-injuries related to vaping and e-cigarettes.

Sixty nine percent of the cases are males. 16-percent, kids under the age of 18.

States across the country taking action. New York, Michigan and Utah, just some of the places putting restrictions on the sale of flavored e-cigarettes.

But an executive order to do the same in Washington State met with pushback from store owners.

The heated debate will likely continue as the CDC works to pinpoint a cause for the vaping-related deaths.
