Woman Dies Just Days After Vaping For The First Time

Another vaping-related death has been reported, this time in Kansas.

According to the state health department, the victim was a woman over 50 with a history of health problems. Doctors say she died of acute respiratory distress syndrome just a few days after using e-cigarettes for the first time.

It’s the sixth vaping-related death of the year nationwide, and the CDC is urging people to avoid vapes while the health risks are better investigated. Recently, researchers linked lung disease to high levels of Vitamin E found in vaping liquid.
