According to the American Lung Association, the use of electronic devices to inhale vaporized nicotine-containing liquids, also known as vaping, is a serious public health concern. In 2015, a team of researchers at Harvard discovered while examining the contents of refill liquids, sometimes called e-juice or e-liquid, that 75 percent of the flavored refills they tested contained a chemical called diacetyl, an artificial flavor with a buttery taste. In 2000, this chemical made the news as the probable cause of a rare lung disease called bronchiolitis obliterans, or popcorn lung. It’s associated with chronic rejection of lung and bone marrow transplants, viral infection, and connective tissue diseases. There are treatments that can slow the progression of the disease, but the damage is irreversible. There is not enough evidence to suggest you can get popcorn lung from vaping but on the same token, you can’t rule it out with absolute certainty.
