VAPI (vaping-associated pulmonary injury), aka vaping-associated lung injury, so far is a real medical mystery. Mostly because it has many possible causes yet no identified commonalities, except for the use of vaping hardware.
Because it is difficult to follow the near daily news updates and research regarding VAPI, I started this super thread to help myself and others understand VAPI. My main goal is to make sure we’re all working with the same facts in an unbiased manner.
I am doing this because I think there are enough very smart people here with the expert knowledge to actually help make progress on understanding and stopping VAPI.
Real people are getting sick and dying. According the CDC, as of 10.3.2019 the count is 1,080 people with confirmed or probable cases of VAPI in the US, with 19 deaths.
Below I will post a link to recent threads on this site dealing directly with VAPI. I am posting new threads only because the understanding of VAPI is changing fast Then, in the next two posts that I am reserving, I will post the most up to date facts on VAPI, and then I will post a list of publicized research/studies as well as news reports on VAPI from reputable sources, which I will endeavor to update every day, or as new info comes out.
If you like this idea please help me! Please add info and scientific understanding if you are able.
