Long-term Risks of Vaping - New Information

You may have heard about sudden lung injury related to e-cigarettes (also called ENDS) and vaping, but less has been reported about the long-term effects of using the devices. This makes sense; they have not been around long. However, without many studies about health consequences, we have sometimes assumed that e-cigarettes are safer than combustible cigarettes.

This understanding is evolving. An article published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine in December 2019 reports that a link has been found between long-term vaping and chronic lung diseases.
