Allison Aubrey reports for Health News Florida on Sep 24, 2019:

Dr. Anne Schuchat, a top official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warned federal lawmakers Tuesday that a new generation of e-cigarettes now on the market is "even more addictive," than early versions of vapes, and the number of vaping-related lung diseases is continuing to rise. Ruby Johnson, the mother of a college-aged student hospitalized last month with severe respiratory problems linked to vaping, also testified at the hearing. Teens have been used as guinea pigs, she told the members of Congress. Tuesday's was the first of two days of public hearings conducted by the  House Committee on Oversight and Reform to examine vaping's risks.
