Tobacco: Worry over vaping deaths

31 Jan 2020 - Alcohol & Tobacco

Two deaths in England that may be linked to vaping are being investigated by the medicines watchdog. The Medicines and Healthcare regulatory agency has also had 20 reports of bad reactions to vaping. Public Health England advises using e-cigarettes as a step to quitting, but experts said the deaths were “concerning”. In 2010, a man died from a pneumonia linked to oil in e-cigarette vapour. In 2012, an e-cigarette user died of a sudden heart attack.
