EVALI. Vapes of death
To vape or not to vape? Is it safe? Is it safer than smoking regular cigarettes? There are more questions than answers about how vaping affects our health. Since 2019, cases of a mysterious vaping illness have become widespread. In the US alone, nearly 3,000 people were hospitalized between 2019 and 2020, and 68 died. The disease is now known as EVALI, short for e-cigarette, or vaping, product use-associated lung injury.
