Lung Disease Caused by Black Market Not Vaping

by Hazetown Vapes on

Why is vaping suddenly in the news? More specifically, what is behind the current media attacks on vaping as a cause of lung disease? People have been vaping for over a decade now, but suddenly news outlets, the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control are reporting increasing incidents of potentially life-threatening lung disorders. What's going on?

Black Market Cannabis Products Are Causing Lung Disease, Not Vaping

Official from New York's Health Department recently published a report stating that laboratory tests of people who had vaped black market cannabis products inhaled excessive amounts of vitamin E acetate.

According to an official statement from the NYSDH: "You should never purchase unregulated vaping products off the street. Vitamin E acetate is meant for topical use. It is not supposed to be heated and then inhaled into the lungs. The reaction of your lungs to this hot oil is what is causing symptoms such as chest pain, difficulty breathing, coughing and fever."

Some black market cannabis products contain substances even more harmful to health than vitamin E acetate. For example, a Wisconsin man was seriously sickened when he vaped black market cannabis products that were later found to contain unsafe amounts of myclobutanil. A powerful fungicide banned in Oregon, Colorado, Washington, and Canada, myclobutanil decomposes when heated, producing corrosive, toxic fumes including carbon monoxide and hydrogen chloride. This man is still hospitalized and may not fully recover.

Vaping Does Not Cause Illness

Anti-Tobacco Advocates Exploit News About Black Market Cannabis Products

Few news outlets are reporting that the true source of lung disease affecting people who vape is black market cannabis. Most news articles about vaping causing severe respiratory illnesses only refer to the fact that people getting sick are vaping. Consequently, vaping is falsely being blamed for lung diseases when, in fact, there have been no reports of people falling ill from vaping since e-cigarettes hit the market nearly 15 years ago.

The tobacco industry is also involved in blaming vaping for the sudden spate of lung diseases. With more young adults choosing to vape instead of smoke cigarettes, big tobacco companies desperately need a scapegoat to revive massive decreases in revenue. What better way to frighten people away from vaping than to spread false reports about people suffering lung disorders and needing emergency treatment?

Here are the facts: 

  • Vaping does not cause sudden, respiratory illnesses. However, vaping with unregulated black market products that contain harmful chemicals can cause lung disease.
  • No clinical evidence exists that suggests long-term vaping with safe, regulated products causes lung disease.
  • Reports of people suffering serious respiratory failure from vaping neglect to mention that the person used recently released products not previously available in the United States. In other words, the sudden emergence of lung disorders affecting vapers is due to raw materials and possibly to the manufacturing processes involved in making these new vaping products.
  • Results of a recent study investigating the toxicity of e-cigarette vapor and tobacco smoke found that cigarette smoke not only damages genetic DNA but may promote widespread cell death in people who smoke heavily and daily. Alternately, vaping is neither cytotoxic or genotoxic even in higher than normal doses.

Tobacco companies, with assistance from the CDC and reporters writing clickbait articles, appear to be waging a collaborated campaign against vaping. In addition, they also seem to be saying that if you want to smoke something, you should take up smoking cigarettes again instead of vaping, even though thousands of peer-reviewed research reports clearly indicate tobacco is a carcinogen.

Cigarettes vs. Vape Juice Ingredients

When you buy professionally made, pure vape juice from Hazetown Vapes, you are inhaling safe and tested ingredients such as propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, and food-grade flavorings. You can also choose to purchase vape juice with or without nicotine. Vaping has helped millions of people overcome their addiction to cigarettes by giving them the ability to gradually reduce nicotine intake and cravings.

Cigarettes contain nearly 100 chemicals known to damage your lungs and cause cancer. Black market products recently tested have been found to contain toxic fungicides and potentially other chemicals harmful to your health. Why take a chance on compromising your health by smoking cigarettes or using illicit vaping products when Hazetown Vapes provides hundreds of different vape juices that are safe, taste great, and always gives you an enjoyable, satisfying vaping experience?

Safe, Brand-name Products for Your Vaping Pleasure

When you vape with black market products, you do not know what kind of ingredients you are inhaling. Ingredients may be listed on the package, but that doesn't mean those are the only ingredients in the vaping product.

Makers of black market vaping products want to sell as much of their products while spending as little as possible making the product. For this reason, they may use cheap, questionable ingredients to give their product qualities they can advertise. Unfortunately, the vaping industry is unfairly taking the brunt of the backlash following recent reports of vapers suffering lung diseases from using contaminated, black market products.
