    Nice, I was thinking that this would/could be a secondary effect of more people vaping.

    Yes, and it sure is curious that national statistics seem to end just as vaping took off. Almost as if they do not want anyone to know the truth.

    Public health agencies have issued dozens of fearmongering reports about burns from exploding e-cig batteries, but have failed to highlight (or even report) that cigarette burns have declined significantly, and that combined burns (and especially burn deaths) from smoking+vaping have significantly declined in past 7 years.

    I have to give MPR (Minnesota Public Radio)kudos for reporting
    this. I cannot find a single other local news service that covered this.
    Mnpls./St. Paul is the 15th largest media market in the country.

    Regards

    If fire deaths had increased, it would have generated lead stories in dozens of newspapers, TV and radio news shows.

    For financial reasons, the sadistic news media focuses on hyping bad news, and ignoring good news.
