Vaping illness free UK
After hearing so many cases of illness caused by vaping in USA, it’s kind of weird European countries, especially UK, are free from the rumors.
This debate has extra resonance in the U.K., where the government has embraced e-cigarettes as a way to wean people off tobacco.
There, officials say the worst thing people could do is go back to regular cigarettes out of fears that vapes could land them in the hospital with a major lung malfunction.
“You’re terrifying people who are benefiting from vaping by not smoking,” said Clive Bates, a former chief of the U.K. charity Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) and a strong defender of e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation tool.
Bates argued that authorities should be delivering more targeted warnings about unregulated products. Instead, he said the U.S. medical establishment is creating one of the “darkest episodes in American public health … They have lost all their moorings with evidence and good practice.”
The U.K. has the world’s third-highest uptake of e-cigarettes, and government health officials promote vapes as a way to wean people off more harmful tobacco. Over the past year, according to the country’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), only 12 incidents of health problems with nicotine-containing e-cigarettes have been reported to the regulator’s voluntary system.
Among those, seven involved respiratory problems, and none of the cases were considered serious or required hospitalization. (Even in these cases, it’s not known if the e-cigarette was the cause of the reported problems.)

Serious American THC crime
It’s reported by ABCNEWS that Wisconsin brothers are accused of running illegal THC vape cartridge ’empire’.
It was the raid at the condo, which was rented under a fake name, that netted 31,200 vape cartridges in the condo, each filled with 1 gram of liquid THC — the main psychoactive component of cannabis — and ready to be distributed, according to Beth. There were also 98,000 empty vape cartridges and 57 mason jars filled with liquid THC, with the contents of each jar valued at approximately $6,000, as well as three money-counting machines and 18 pounds of marijuana, Beth added.
At the Paddock Lake residence, where the brothers live, $59,000 in cash, guns, drugs and drug paraphernalia was found, according to authorities. But that was just the “tip of the iceberg” in their alleged “empire of illegal drugs,” said Beth, the Kenosha County Sheriff.
- Illegal THC is the culprit that sickens victims with vape.
- Illegal vape oil, counterfeit, fake pods should be hit harder than before.
- Heavy vaping do harm the health but its harm is far from smoking. After all, smoking kills 8 million people per year., while the deaths by vaping, more exactly, THC vaping, are only hundreds. It’s still acceptable when the number rises up to 1 thousand.
- Stay calm when the vaping panic comes and keep vaping moderately.
