The popularity of vaping and e-cigarettes has grown exponentially in the last few years just as scrutiny of the popular cigarette alternative grows as well. As of Monday, September 9, 2019, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) released a statement accusing e-cigarette maker Juul of illegally marketing its e-cigarette product as safer than smoking cigarettes. This comes on the heels of investigations of vaping related illnesses and deaths in recent months.

If you or a loved one has been affected by vaping, you may experience some of the following symptoms:
