    I feel she didn't explain a thing. I have to rant on one point in particular: 20+ chemicals in a cigarette? More than 4500 chemicals in an UNLIT cigarette is 20+ though..

    Legal Journalist? Do some more research next time ma'am.

    Thomas Jefferson once wrote "Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper." Things haven't changed much just the medium

    RT? Seriously? This is pretty much the Russian propaganda arm of the Russian government. In other words, it's no better than Pravda.

    How is it any different than MSM. RT might actually be more legit than MSNBC and CNN.

    These people are not journalists. They are slimey tort lawyers. Nobody will learn anything on the merits from this. I read every report on injury accidents related to vaping I encounter. So far all of them involve either loose batteries with unprotected terminals or mech mods. The purpose of these people is in getting out of court settlements from insurance companies regardless of the merits, not reporting useful or truthful information.

    The article is just advocating more lawsuits against vapor companies so lawyers make more money.

    Of far greater interest is the actual outcomes of the many different lawsuits that have already been filed against vapor companies.
