Quitting Vaping Can Improve Your Health, Too!

Vaping isn’t as harmless as it seems.

There have been a number of severe lung illness cases related to using vaping products. A disease named EVALI (E-cigarette or Vaping use-Associated Lung Injury) was identified. Of about 2,000 patients with EVALI, 95% were hospitalized. Most were younger than 35.
