What’s the Problem?
January 4, 2017 – The Associated Press announced last month that at least 66 vape explosions had been reported to the FDA from 2015 to early 2016.
“Vaping” is a trendy approach to traditional smoking in which flavored liquid is placed in a vaporizer tank to be heated and inhaled. Vaporizers, also known as electronic cigarettes or e-cigs, are made of 3 main components: a battery, tank and atomizer. E-liquid comes in a wide variety of flavors from a traditional tobacco to sweet desserts to custom blended flavors.
Vapes are relatively new devices whose safety has not been studied extensively, and there’s no scientific consensus on whether they’re actually healthier than traditional cigarette smoking.
FDA announced last year that it would begin to regulate the fast-growing vape industry, requiring manufacturers to submit their devices and ingredients for review for the first time.
