As of October 1st, 2019, CDC has stated that there have been 18 confirmed deaths in the USA due to vaping.
There have been incidents where vaping pens have exploded in people’s face while in use. One incident that occurred in Nevada caused a minor to shatter his jaw. While the Nevada teen was vaping, the pen mysteriously exploded in his mouth. In 2018, another teen died because his e-cigarette malfunctioned while he was using the pen. There have been multiple reports of malfunctioned e-cigarettes. There is now an investigation that will associate the use of e-cigarettes, or vaping products with lung injuries.
If you are worried your teen is vaping or smoking, MedLabExams offers drug testing that will confirm the use of nicotine. For more information, give us a call at (909)795-4259.
