Illinois Teen Has Lungs ‘Like A 70-Year-Old’s’ After Vaping

Another day, another alarming tale of the health risks of e-cigarettes.  This one involves an Illinois teen who has lungs “like a 70-year-old’s” after less than two years of vaping.

18-year-old Adam Hergenreder began vaping tobacco and THC products at the age of 16.  He was recently hospitalized with severe lung damage that doctors say is due to e-cigarettes.

The CDC has linked six deaths this year to e-cigarettes, and the White House has recently floated the idea of banning them.
