Boston Dangers Of E-Cigarettes and Vaping Attorneys

Of particular concern is the marketing of these products to young adults and teens. At Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., our knowledgeable and experienced team is ready to help if you or a loved one have been harmed after using e-cigarettes. Let our Boston e-cigarette attorneys investigate your case today.

E-cigarettes Are A Major Health Concern

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a continually updated list of illnesses and fatalities due to e-cigarettes and vaping. The health concerns related to using these products have been in the spotlight. While the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for regulating these products, they have so far failed to do so in any significant manner. Doctors who have handled e-cigarette illness cases have reported the following common symptoms:

  • Breathing difficulty
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Coughing
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss

Many e-cigarette illness victims have been put into comas, and dozens of people have died. Doctors have a name for the long illness is caused by these products – -cigarette, or vaping, product use associated lung injury, or EVALI.

Marketing To Young People

Many e-cigarette manufacturers are facing increased scrutiny over their tactics of marketing to young people. These tactics are eerily similar to those used by big tobacco companies with traditional cigarettes. Regulators and lawmakers have said that e-cigarette companies directly target young adults and teens and entice them with flavored e-cigarette fluids.

Most e-cigarettes contain high levels of nicotine. Early generations of e-cigarettes contained 1% to 2.4% of nicotine in their solutions. However, it is not uncommon for e-cigarette solutions to now contain up to 5% nicotine. This makes these products highly addictive and nicotine has been shown to negatively affect the brain development of young adults and teenagers.

Some of the most popular brands of e-cigarettes include, but are not limited to, the following

  • Juul
  • Blu E-Cigs
  • NJOY
  • Om Vapors
  • Green Smoke
  • Mig Vapor
  • VAIO Vapor
