Vaping causing lung disease in Door County

Door County teenagers and young adults have recently gotten sick from vaping. In all, 11 people from Wisconsin have come down with fatigue, chest pain and shortness of breath. For another seven people, it is suspected vaping made them sick. Sue Powers, Door County Public Health Officer, says tobacco is changing and parents need to be aware of what’s available now.

 

 

Some who have gotten sick have gone so far as needing a machine to help them breathe. A few have recovered from treatment. It is unclear whether all who have developed lung disease will recover fully. Powers adds there are no definitive studies about the long-term effects of e-cigarettes and vaping.
