US Army Hits Wrong Target Again


The US Army has launched an attack on vaping but thanks to poor intel it is hitting the wrong target and adding to casualty figures.

In repeating the debunked myth that vaping causes serious lung injury, the military has chosen to ignore that even the Centres for Disease Control now accepts the incidents were caused by Vitamin E Acetate in illegal THC products.

It does say that the danger is posed by unregulated products but, given that the FDA has only issued authorisation to one product, it conflates illicit THC liquids with safer vape e-liquids.

Vaping has been commercially available since the early 2000s, and there have been hundreds of reports of e-cigarette or vaping use-associated lung injury, or EVALI, in the general population since then,” it states.
