WARNING: SOME E-CIGARETTE FLAVORS CONTAIN DANGEROUS FLAVORING CHEMICAL RESPONSIBLE FOR SEVERE LUNG DISEASE

E-Cig_Liquids

Big tobacco has convinced users of electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) that they are safer than tobacco cigarettes, in part, because they do not have all of the additives. They are wrong. A new study reveals that numerous flavors used in e-cigs, especially fruit, candy and alcohol flavors, contain dangerous amounts of diacetyl. Diacetyl is a flavoring chemical best known for an outbreak of severe lung disease in workers at factories making the chemical or adding it to common founds like popcorn. These workers had 10 times the risk of airway obstruction including a severe signature lung disease called bronchiolitis obliterans or “popcorn lung.” The heating, vaporization and inhalation of diacetyl at the levels found in many e-cig flavorings can greatly increase your risk of several types of lung disease.

If you or a loved one have smoked e-cigs for several months or years and have suffered from one of the following you may be entitled to compensation:

  • Bronchiolitis obliterans (a/k/a “popcorn lung”)
  • Fixed airway obstruction
  • Respiratory disease of the small airways
  • Chronic bronchitis, shortness of breath or cough
  • Other severe lung disease or loss of pulmonary function
