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.
