The State Health Department on Friday made an announcement that about nine people were admitted to the hospitals of New Jersey with severe lung illness, who happened to have a history of vaping. Along with New Jersey, there are six other states in which more than 50 lung-related diseases have been reported that more likely affected persons with regular use of electronic cigarettes and similar vaping devices.
An announcement made by the acting commissioner of health, Judith Persichilli stated that the patients that were admitted suffering from severe lung diseases were in between ages of 17 and 35. The symptoms were similar in all the patients –shortness of breath, suffering from severe cough, and fatigue before they got admitted to the hospital.
The medical professionals and health officials were asked by the state to seek out for the patients with vaping history and suffering from unknown infectious cause having respiratory symptoms.
The e-cigarettes were considered to be the less harmful alternative of cigarettes, which could help the adults to quit smoking as well. But the teens are increasingly attracted to their fruity flavors and the high-nicotine content in them, which is certainly proving to be harmful.
