Why Vaping Lung-Related Injuries Are On The Rise
Vaping lung-related injuries are on the rise, and there are still many unanswered questions as to why.
This week on Florida Matters, we take a closer look as to why this is a newfound health concern.
Host Robin Sussingham has an in-depth conversation with our guests as we learn about the injuries associated with vaping, such as popcorn lung -- which is irreversable tissue damage -- and noticeable DNA changes to the mouth.
We also hear about a bill presented to the Florida Legislature restricting the sales of any vape product to those 21 and older.
Our Guests include:
Rep. Jackie Toledo, R-Tampa
Kevin Sneed, PharmD, Dean and Professor, USF Health Taneja College of Pharmacy
