WHY HAVE 60 PEOPLE DIED IN THE US DUE TO A VAPING RELATED DISEASE?
By now the news from the US about the recent deaths from vaping have taken over the UK headlines and are eclipsing the Brexit debate. Unsurprisingly for American news outlets the style of reporting is sensationalist, and there has been a reflexive reaction by the FDA and other US legal bodies on e-cigarettes.
But how did it get to this? What the US is experiencing is the perfect storm – an unregulated e-cigarette industry, introduction of ultra-high nicotine products using Nicotine Salts, open system vaping devices and a blossoming black-market THC market – that has culminated into the current situation. It is important to understand each of these points and why this is not an issue here in the UK if you are vaping a regulated product.
We wanted to get down to the root of the issues that are facing the vaping industry state-side and set your mind at ease about the safety of electronic cigarettes.
