FDA Finalizes Enforcement Policy on Unauthorized Flavored Cartridge-Based E-Cigarettes That Appeal to Children, Including Fruit and Mint

January 2, 2020

Companies that do not cease manufacture, distribution and sale of unauthorized flavored cartridge-based e-cigarettes (other than tobacco or menthol) within 30 days risk FDA enforcement actions

Amid the epidemic levels of youth use of e-cigarettes and the popularity of certain products among children, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today issued a policy prioritizing enforcement against certain unauthorized flavored e-cigarette products that appeal to kids, including fruit and mint flavors. Under this policy, companies that do not cease manufacture, distribution and sale of unauthorized flavored cartridge-based e-cigarettes (other than tobacco or menthol) within 30 days risk FDA enforcement actions.

“The United States has never seen an epidemic of substance use arise as quickly as our current epidemic of youth use of e-cigarettes. HHS is taking a comprehensive, aggressive approach to enforcing the law passed by Congress, under which no e-cigarettes are currently on the market legally,” said HHS Secretary Alex Azar. “By prioritizing enforcement against the products that are most widely used by children, our action today seeks to strike the right public health balance by maintaining e-cigarettes as a potential off-ramp for adults using combustible tobacco while ensuring these products don’t provide an on-ramp to nicotine addiction for our youth. We will not stand idly by as this crisis among America’s youth grows and evolves, and we will continue monitoring the situation and take further actions as necessary.”

“As we work to combat the troubling epidemic of youth e-cigarette use, the enforcement policy we’re issuing today confirms our commitment to dramatically limit children’s access to certain flavored e-cigarette products we know are so appealing to them -- so-called cartridge-based products that are both easy to use and easily concealable. We will continue to use our full regulatory authority thoughtfully and thoroughly to tackle this alarming crisis that’s affecting children, families, schools and communities,” said FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn, M.D. “Coupled with the recently signed legislation increasing the minimum age of sale of tobacco to 21, we believe this policy balances the urgency with which we must address the public health threat of youth use of e-cigarette products with the potential role that e-cigarettes may play in helping adult smokers transition completely away from combustible tobacco to a potentially less risky form of nicotine delivery. While we expect that responsible members of industry will comply with premarket requirements, we’re ready to take action against any unauthorized e-cigarette products as outlined in our priorities. We’ll also closely monitor the use rates of all e-cigarette products and take additional steps to address youth use as necessary.”

The final guidance outlining the agency’s enforcement priorities for electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), such as e-cigarettes and e-liquids, comes as the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS) results exit disclaimer icon on e-cigarette use show that more than 5 million U.S. middle and high school students are current e-cigarette users (having used within the last 30 days) – with a majority reporting cartridge-based products as their usual brand.

The NYTS survey, which is conducted annually by the FDA in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, also shows that of current youth e-cigarette users in 2019, approximately 1.6 million were using the product frequently (use on 20 days or more in a 30-day period), with nearly one million using e-cigarettes daily. Additional data from another federal survey exit disclaimer icon further underscore that youth are particularly attracted to e-cigarette flavors such as fruit and mint, much more so than tobacco or menthol flavored e-cigarettes. These overall levels of youth e-cigarette use are particularly concerning because using e-cigarettes puts them at risk for nicotine addiction and other health consequences. In particular, evidence shows that youth exposure to nicotine can adversely affect the developing adolescent brain and that, compared with non-users, youth who use e-cigarettes are more likely to try conventional cigarettes in the future.

On Aug. 8, 2016, all e-cigarettes and other ENDS products became subject to the FDA’s tobacco authorities, including the premarket authorization requirements in the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). All e-cigarettes and other ENDS products on the market at that time needed to have authorization from the FDA to be legally marketed. However, as an exercise of its enforcement discretion, the agency had deferred enforcement of the premarket authorization requirements. To date, no ENDS products have been authorized by the FDA — meaning that all ENDS products currently on the market are considered illegally marketed and are subject to enforcement, at any time, in FDA’s discretion.

Beginning 30 days from the publication of the notice of availability of this guidance in the Federal Register, the FDA intends to prioritize enforcement against these illegally marketed ENDS products by focusing on the following groups of products that do not have premarket authorization:

  • Any flavored, cartridge-based ENDS product (other than a tobacco- or menthol-flavored ENDS product);
  • All other ENDS products for which the manufacturer has failed to take (or is failing to take) adequate measures to prevent minors’ access; and
  • Any ENDS product that is targeted to minors or likely to promote use of ENDS by minors.

Cartridge-based ENDS products are a type of ENDS product that consists of, includes, or involves a cartridge or pod that holds liquid that is to be aerosolized when the product is used. For purposes of this policy, a cartridge or pod is any small, enclosed unit (sealed or unsealed) designed to fit within or operate as part of an ENDS product.

By not prioritizing enforcement against other flavored ENDS products in the same way as flavored cartridge-based ENDS products, the FDA has attempted to balance the public health concerns related to youth use of ENDS products with considerations regarding addicted adult cigarette smokers who may try to use ENDS products to transition away from combustible tobacco products. In addition to data showing that cartridge-based ENDS products are most commonly used among youth, important findings from the 2019 Monitoring the Future survey exit disclaimer icon focusing on youth use of JUUL indicate that youth preference for menthol- and tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes is much lower than that for mint- and fruit-flavored e-cigarettes. Because of the relatively low numbers of youth using both menthol- and tobacco-flavored, cartridge-based ENDS products, these products are not among the current enforcement priorities. However, should the FDA become aware of an increase of youth using any other flavored products (both cartridge-based or otherwise), the agency will take additional steps to address youth use of those products if necessary. 

For all other products (cartridge-based or otherwise), including menthol-, tobacco-, and non-flavored ENDS products, the FDA will also prioritize enforcement where the manufacturer fails to take adequate measures to prevent youth access. For example, the FDA will consider whether the manufacturer has implemented adequate programs to monitor retailer compliance with age-verification and sales restrictions or if it has established and enforced penalties against retailers that fail to comply with those programs. The agency also will consider whether the manufacturer uses adequate age-verification technology (or requires that retailers who sell its products use such technology) to prevent underage access to its website and to prevent underage sales through the internet. In addition, consideration will be given to whether the manufacturer limits (or requires retailers who sell its products to limit) the quantity of ENDS products that a customer may purchase within a given period of time.

The FDA also intends to prioritize enforcement with respect to any ENDS products that are targeted to youth or likely to promote use of ENDS by youth. Examples include: products marketed with labeling and/or advertising that resemble kid-friendly foods and drinks such as juice boxes or kid-friendly cereal; products marketed directly to minors by promoting ease of concealing the product or disguising it as another product; and products marketed with characters designed to appeal to youth.

Importantly, the FDA’s enforcement priorities are not a “ban” on flavored or cartridge-based ENDS. The FDA has already accepted and begun review of several premarket applications for flavored ENDS products through the pathway that Congress established in the Tobacco Control Act. Manufacturers that wish to market any ENDS product – including flavored e-cigarettes or e-liquids – are required by law to submit an application to the FDA that demonstrates that the product meets the applicable standard in the law, such as whether the product is appropriate for the protection of the public health. If a company can demonstrate to the FDA that a specific product meets the applicable standard set forth by Congress, including considering how the marketing of the product may affect youth initiation and use, then the FDA could authorize that product for sale.

The guidance also states that, after May 12, 2020, the FDA intends to also prioritize enforcement against any ENDS products that continue to be sold and for which the manufacturers have not submitted a premarket application. For ENDS products other than those in the three groups described above, if premarket applications are submitted by that date, the FDA intends to continue to exercise enforcement discretion for up to one year pending FDA review of the applications, unless there is a negative action by the FDA on such application or the product is authorized to be marketed by the FDA.

The FDA has demonstrated a deep commitment to taking steps to prevent youth from using and becoming addicted to any tobacco product, including e-cigarettes. This enforcement policy is an important step in the agency’s ongoing work to ensure these products are not marketed to, sold to, or used by kids, as outlined in the agency’s Youth Tobacco Prevention Plan, including investing in public education campaigns to educate youth about the dangers of e-cigarette use, provide resources to educators, parents and community leaders to prevent youth use, as well as further explore how to help those kids who are already addicted to e-cigarettes quit.

E-Cigarettes: The HHS Smoking Gun

Friday, December 20, 2019 10:12:24 AM America/New_York

For months, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been telling us that young people are becoming hooked on flavored e-cigarettes. Now, we know that not only was HHS wrong, but they knew better and were outrightly dishonest to the American public.

After months of sitting on the information, the CDC finally released the National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS) results, and unsurprisingly, the responses confirmed that vaping flavors are not at the root of the youth smoking crisis in this country.

According to the published data, barely one in five youths cited flavors, such as mint, candy, fruit or chocolate, as the reason they picked up vaping products. In fact, they ranked flavors just as important to them than their ability to “do tricks” with their vaping pens, like blowing smoke rings or making shapes. The reasons cited by teens ahead of those two categories and leading the charge in youth usage of vaping products, at 55.3 percent, was simply that they were “curious about them.”

Until now, the FDA and the administration have been staunchly blaming flavored vaping products for the spike in youth use, claiming that flavors have made the products more attractive to teenagers. Even though these survey results prove the opposite to be true, this empirical evidence did not come out and did not remove culpability from flavored products.

The newly released data also begs the question of how long has HHS had access to these results. The flavor ban was first proposed by President Trump on September 11th, but before that, the FDA had publicly blamed flavors for the crisis multiple times.

These survey results prove that not only has the conversation been unjustly manipulated by the government, but the subsequently proposed flavor regulation has the power to kill thousands of American jobs, without sound reasoning to back up the decision. Banning flavors will undoubtedly and unfairly punish well-intentioned companies in the vaping space, force former smokers to return to old habits, and potentially catalyze a black market of illicit products.

Most importantly and less recognized, these regulations will without question cost American lives. Data shows that e-cigarettes are 95% safer than smoking tobacco products and, compared to prescribed alternatives, are almost twice as effective in getting smokers off traditional cigarettes – potentially saving millions of lives. We hope that HHS cares about these lives.

The FDA claims to pride itself on being a fact-driven organization that uses statistics and hard data to come to conclusions. If that is truly the case, then the current data, combined with former data showing that kids overwhelming rank menthol, a “non-flavor” as their favorite, reveals the hard-and-fast facts that they have been ignored and shielded from the public.

The government bureaucracy has kept the American public in the dark in favor of politics. Not only that, but it turned out to be terrible politics, considering a flavor ban has considerable power to hurt Trump’s reelection, with polls showing 11 percent of Trump’s supporters are less likely to vote for a candidate who backs a flavor ban.

The needless domino effect of consequences that would result from this blatantly anti-business regulation would be catastrophic for the country. Going forward, we can only hope the administration leans on facts. Rather than haphazardly picking winners and losers in this situation, it should not continue along the path toward a nationwide flavor ban.

If safety is a concern to the FDA, then Americans deserve better.

Is the FDA about to ban all but two flavors?

Wednesday, November 6, 2019 10:05:35 AM America/New_York

A Message from Casaa

On Monday, November 4, or early in the week, we are anticipating an announcement from the Trump Administration regarding FDA guidance about sales of flavored vapor products. According to recent reports, this guidance is expected to go as far as banning every flavor other than tobacco and menthol. In spite of years of communications from consumers and meetings with industry stakeholders, it is clear that officials remain unknowledgeable about how the vapor industry functions and what customers need.

Two flavors will not sustain independent vapor retailers and
will unnecessarily make vaping less attractive
to people who want to switch away from smoking.


The White House needs to hear from adult vapers and anyone who loves a vaper! A flavor ban won’t protect our children, but it will kill their parents.

We need to 
Light Up The Switchboard
At The White House!

Research Suggests Flavored Vape Products Aren't Responsible For Teenage Usage

Tuesday, October 22, 2019 11:04:32 AM America/New_York

Do flavored vape products correlate to teen vaping? The answer seems to be no. Read here to learn more about recent studies regarding teens and vaping.

Over the last few years, the CDC and other government organizations have released information indicating there is an ‘epidemic’ involving teen vape users. Many of these reports suggest that the number of teens who vape is increasing rapidly, resulting in a health crisis.

Recent reports of vape related lung damage have continued to push this narrative. As a result, several places in the United States have banned flavored vape products in hopes that this will make people --especially teens-- less likely to vape.

However, research has proven there is no such epidemic. New information also suggests that flavor options are not to blame for enticing teens to vape. A new study has shown that teens who are regular smokers are most likely to vape. Only about 1% of teens who are not regular smokers have tried vaping. 

Although there’s no doubt that teens smoking and/or vaping is a serious issue that should be addressed, it’s important that false narratives don’t get used as a way to address this problem. 

The Vapor Technology Association (VTA) is urging government officials “to limit the marketing of tobacco products while still making them available to the millions of adult smokers in America.” Others have suggested changing the legal age to purchase tobacco from 18 to 21 and harsher punishments for those who sell vape products to underage users. 

Although the perfect solution hasn’t been implemented yet, one thing is for sure: a strict flavor ban could result in more harm than good. Limiting adults access to vape products means that smokers will have one less option when trying to quit.

Many smokers who have transitioned to vaping believe the decision has saved their lives. They also believe that their lives could be at risk due to the CDC’s inaccurate information as well as flavor bans and added restrictions on other vape products.

Debbye Saladine-Thompson, who smoked for 35 years before switching to vaping told U.S News “I cannot trust an agency that says the product that I and so many people have been using for 10 years and hasn't caused one death is now causing hundreds of illnesses. No, I do not believe that."

As trust in both legislation and the CDC continues to decrease, researches and vape enthusiasts will continue to push the truth to the forefront.

False Information About E-Cigarettes is Putting Lives at Risk

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 10:28:49 AM America/New_York

Public outcry against e-cigarettes is doing more harm than good. Read here to learn how false information about e-cigarettes is putting lives at risk.

Over the last several months, there have been several stories about teens across the country who have been hospitalized due to serious lung damage caused by vaping. These stories have reported that teens from several states have suffered heart attack like symptoms with vaping being the common denominator.

However, many of these stories neglected to mention the fact that the teens also admitted to vaping illegal and unregulated THC products that they purchased from the black market. The items contained harmful ingredients not found in legal vaping products.

Sadly, these stories have been used to push the narrative that vapes and e-cigarettes are harmful products that should no longer be available to the public. When polled, most Americans said that they believed e-cigarettes to be more harmful than traditional cigarettes and other tobacco products. The FDA and other government organizations also continue to deliver the message that e-cigarettes are very dangerous, despite research consistently saying the opposite. 

Studies have shown that not only are e-cigarettes less harmful than traditional cigarettes, but they’re also a very effective tool for helping smokers quit. In fact, researchers believe that e-cigarettes could be two times as effective as other forms of tobacco/nicotine replacements. 

Studies have also  proven that the process e-cigarettes use to vaporize tobacco is safer than the method used in cigarettes because it allows users to inhale an aerosol which contains fewer harmful chemicals. 

Pushing the rhetoric that e-cigarettes are more deadly than cigarettes is dangerous - especially for people who are looking for a way to quit smoking and have exhausted other options. Smoking kills approximately a half a million people each year in the United States alone. This number could decrease significantly with the help of e-cigarettes. 

By hiding the truth about e-cigarettes, it seems like law makers and government officials are actually creating what they claim they are trying to avoid:a public health crisis. 

As new reports continue to show the effectiveness of e-cigarettes, the industry can only hope that this evidence is used to shed light on the positives.

New Research Finds The CDC Made False Claims About 'Vaping Epidemic'

Friday, October 11, 2019 9:46:10 AM America/New_York

UK based researchers have re-analyzed The CDC's study about the teen 'vaping epidemic'. Read here to learn what they found.

As headlines about the dangers of vaping continue to dominate the headlines, many people are working hard to bring the truth about vaping to the forefront. As a result,  of the UK’s top researchers have recently taken a second look at a study conducted by The CDC in 2018. 

The study “found a 78% rise in vaping (at least one puff in the last 30 days) by US high schoolers (15-18 years old) between 2017 and 2018.” These alarming numbers sent the many parents -- as well as the general public -- into an uproar about vaping However, UK researchers have uncovered “a gaping chasm” between what the study shows and the truth.

In the re-analysis of the 2018 study, UK researchers differentiated between experimental and regular vapors. Regular vaping was defined as occurring more than 20 times a month.

According to The Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association, “The study found that in never-smokers, regular vaping was rare, nicotine addiction was minimal and the great majority of smokers used tobacco before trying vaping.” To be specific, the results indicated that only 8.4% of teens who had never smoked had vaped within the last 30 days. Of those teens, only 1% were regular vapers. These numbers indicate that a health crisis involving teen vape usage simply isn’t true. 

In fact, teens in the United States are much more likely to partake in other risky behaviors such as drinking, texting while driving, and using cannabis. UK researchers also found that most teens smoke before vaping which means that cigarettes present a much bigger threat to teens than vaping. 

Hopefully public opinion will shift as more studies continue to prove that there is no health crisis associated with vaping. In the meantime, researches and vaping organizations will continue to spread factual information about the realities of vaping.

Former Smoker Testifies That Vaping Saved Her Life

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 3:07:46 PM America/New_York

Read here to learn how a former smoker's testimony credits flavored e-cigarettes with saving her life by helping her quit cigarettes.

Did you know that more than 16 million people in the United States are fighting a smoking related disease? In addition, the average smoker will live 10 years less than a non-smoker. Even people who don’t smoke can be put at risk when coming in contact with cigarette smoke.

Needless to say, almost all of the statistics surrounding cigarettes are connected to serious health issues, and even death.

Although more than half of cigarette smoking adults have admitted that they’d like to quit, doing so is easier said than done. Until now at least.

With the rise of e-cigarettes, many smokers have seen this option as the ideal way to quit. Research has shown that not only are e-cigarettes far less harmful than traditional cigarettes, but they’re also more successful than other methods at getting people to quit smoking.

A study conducted by researchers in England shows that people who used e-cigarettes were about 60% more likely to quit smoking than people who didn’t. For many smokers, the option to vape different flavors is a huge factor in using e-cigarettes over traditional cigarettes. One woman, Vicky Porter, even believes that flavored e-cigarettes likely saved her life.

In a recent hearing regarding widespread reports of vape related lung damage, Porter testified that e-cigarettes were the only thing that helped her quit smoking. Porter, who discovered e-cigarettes after 23 years of smoking and several failed attempts at quitting, says that her health improved almost immediately after switching to e-cigarettes. 

She specifically mentions that flavors are a huge factor in what makes vaping a great experience and cites a recent survey that found 92% of adult vapers preferred non-tobacco flavors.

Porter’s testimony comes on the heels of several cases of vape related lung damage -- and even death -- across the country. However, as she mentions, these incidents were not the result of vaping itself, but the result of teens attempting to vape illegal THC cartridges purchased from the black market. 

Despite these facts, lawmakers in several states have decided to move forward with stricter regulations on vape products. Some states have even gone as far as to ban the sale of any flavored vape products. 

Officials are claiming this flavor ban will put an end to the ‘health crisis’ caused by vaping, but Porter and many others disagree. Limiting access to e-cigarettes and other products could actually cause a health crisis of its own.

As organizations and officials make plans to overturn these bans, vapers everywhere hope words like Porter’s will be heard -- and taken seriously.

Watch the video below to see Vicky Porter’s impressive testimony.

New Vaping Regulations Are Making Alleged 'Crisis' Worse

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 3:05:34 PM America/New_York

Are new bans on vape products really good for public health? Experts say no. Read here to learn how new vaping regulations could result in a major health crisis.

News of vape related lung damage -- and even deaths -- has been the topic of headlines across the country for several weeks. Recently, in addition to 12 deaths, the CDC reported “805 lung injury cases reported from 46 states and 1 U.S. territory.” Unfortunately, though, most of the coverage on these incidents has left out a very important detail: these teens were vaping illicit THC cartridges that were purchased from illegal sources.

However, despite proof that these deaths and injuries were related to illegal street vapes and not e-cigarettes, lawmakers across the United States are looking to put strict regulations on vape products. Many hope to ban “all non-tobacco flavors of e-cigarettes, including mint and menthol” and some states have already put these regulations into action. On the surface, this decision may seem like it was meant to keep people safe, but in reality, it will likely have the opposite result.

Not only will restricting access to e-cigarettes give traditional smokers one less option for quitting, but it’ll also make people more likely to explore black market options. According to Michelle Minton of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, “[T]he only reason these people turned to the black market was because they couldn’t acquire cannabis or e-cigarettes legally. Black markets only arise when products are unavailable or prohibitively expensive on the legal market, often as a result of well-meaning efforts to protect people from their own choices. But instead of keeping them away from substances that might increase their risks a little, restrictions push people into the illicit market where adulterated and defective products can kill them.”

Limiting access to regulated products will likely result in an increased number of health issues caused by unregulated items that contain harmful chemicals. Some traditional smokers in places that have enacted a flavor ban have said that they will likely go back to cigarettes. This is already an issue as cigarettes are responsible for over 8 million deaths per year. 

Although it’s not uncommon for knee-jerk reactions to influence laws in the United States, many people feel that a widespread flavor ban could create a public health crisis worse than government officials could have imagined.

Vapers in New York Plan to Go Back to Cigarettes Because of Flavor Ban

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 3:03:00 PM America/New_York

New York recently announced that the sale of flavored vape products will be banned throughout the state. Read here to learn about the health risk this poses to vapers.

New York has become one of the most recent states to join the ban on flavored vape products. Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement on September 17th after inaccurate reports of vape related lung damage swept through the nation. Although the stories reported that several teens had experienced severe lung damage due to vaping, they failed to mention an important detail: the teens admitted to smoking illegal THC oils that were purchased from black market sellers.

The ban, which is set to begin on October 4th, came as a shock to vapers all over the state. For many former and current smokers, vaping has provided safer alternative to cigarettes and a more effective way to quit.

Government officials see the ban as a way to protect the public, but the real result will actually be the opposite. To get a true idea of how this ban will affect the public, Helen Redmond of Filter Mag sat down with several New York residents who vape. Lilly, one of the women who was interviewed by Redmond, says that she loves vaping because it does not negatively impact her boyfriend’s asthma unlike traditional cigarettes.

Others feel that vaping is being wrongfully attacked and decisions are being made without all of the facts. Afterall, several studies have shown that vaping is less harmful than smoking and that it is a very useful tool for helping smokers quit. 

A New York vape shop owner, Spike Babian, says that several customers have told her they plan to start smoking now that flavored vape products are unavailable. Another shop owner who chose not to be named, also noted that black market sales will likely increase due to this ban.

Since smoking is responsible for nearly half a million deaths each year in the United States, it goes without saying that a decision that results in people choosing to smoke could create a health crisis.

Watch footage from Helen Redmond’s interview to learn more about this ban will affect New York vapers.

Public Health Professor Advises the Public

Thursday, October 3, 2019 9:34:31 AM America/New_York

‘Don’t Let the CDC Fool You’

The Centers for Disease Control is one of the most highly regarded agencies in the United States. The CDC is responsible for collaborating “to create the expertise, information, and tools that people and communities need to protect their health through health promotion, prevention of disease, injury and disability, and preparedness for new health threats.” As a result, The CDC has gained the trust of countless people all across the country. But what if this organization doesn’t really have our best interests at heart?

According to former CDC employee and currently Boston University professor, Dr. Michael Siegel, that might be the case. Siegel, who has become very vocal against the CDC’s negative claims about vaping, believes the organization is spreading false information about the dangers of vaping and e-cigarette products.  

Dr. Siegel became increasingly outraged when he noticed the way The CDC handled reported of vape related lung damage that left teens from several states hospitalized. Several media outlets reported that the teens had experienced serious lung damage after vaping, but few mentioned the fact that the products the teens were vaping were THC cartridges purchased from illegal (and unregulated) sources. 

According to Dr. Siegel, “The CDC has continually downplayed the role of THC vape carts in the outbreak and even today, continues to blame it on electronic cigarettes generally. Most revealing is the fact that every time the CDC even mentions a potential role of THC, it immediately undermines it by emphasizing that ‘The investigation has not identified any specific e-cigarette or vaping product (devices, liquids, refill pods, and/or cartridges) or substance that is linked to all cases.’”

“Don't let the CDC fool you. What they're not telling you is that in epidemiological outbreak investigations, we almost never identify a single exposure that ties together all of the cases. This is why we calculate odds ratios to estimate the strength of association between the exposure and the cases. If every single case was associated with a single exposure, then it wouldn't take an epidemiological analysis to identify the source of the outbreak.”

Dr. Siegel, along with many others, believe The CDC failed to properly research and report the truth behind the events. In turn, he says the CDC is putting people at risk by spreading inaccuracies. 

As more information continues to come to light regarding the truth behind vaping, the industry hopes it will eventually result in honest education about the products and their benefits.
