Brain - Banning flavored vapes won’t stop deadly lung disease
Key Highlights

Lawmakers and governors in states across the country are pushing for regulations on the products including bans on flavors and increased oversight of counterfeit cartridges

Bans on flavored e-cigarettes were the first

Bans on flavored e-cigarettes were the first to take hold: Michigan announced a ban in early September, though it hasn't gone into effect, and New York state passed an immediate ban on all flavors but tobacco and menthol this week

It's very possible that more than one product is contributing to the outbreak, Crotty Alexander notes people using e-cigarettes or vapes came down with respiratory illnesses before this current outbreak, so different cases could have been caused by different ingredients
