Vaping Caution - Illness associated with vaping products
Health Canada is advising those who use vaping products to monitor themselves for symptoms of pulmonary illness (e.g., cough, shortness of breath, chest pain) and to seek medical attention promptly if they have concerns about their health. This caution comes in the wake of the recent cases of acute pulmonary illnesses and several deaths reportedly linked to the use of vaping products in the United States.
The purchase of vaping products outside the legal market may create additional risk as these products are unregulated and potentially unsafe, and thereby pose a risk to health and safety.
Vaping is not without risk and the potential long-term effects of vaping remain unknown. Non-smokers, people who are pregnant and young people should not vape.
