    Did anyone watch Fox news last night? We have AT&T and it came on our channel 210 at a little after 2:15 a.m. eastern standard time.
    They had a doctor talking about how vaping is bad for you and how it is marketed towards children because of the tasty flavors with cool names, they said.. and the so-called vaping expert was some guy they found on YouTube that does tricks with his smoke- and had absolutely ZERO knowledge about vaping or health effects of it.

    Whenever they asked him why he vaped, he said stupid things like -" it makes me look cool", "chicks dig it", & "it's fun, check out how I look cool doing it", as he Vaped 2 vaporizers at the same time, Etc.

    The doctor was saying that 80% of children under 18 years old have vaped, and they have started seeing more people in the hospitals with popcorn lung.

    I had just read about popcorn lung the other day, and it is a lung disease that used to be prominent with people that worked in popcorn factories, which is how the disease was named- because it is caused by a chemical in popcorn factories, but don't hold me to it but I do believe that the FDA has banned that specific chemical long ago.

    The guy had never heard of it and said basically that he didn't care and that everybody should vape, and it was so embarrassing.. I could barely stand to watch it.

    I was just wondering if anybody else watched this? (It was exactly like when you see bystanders to a disaster that are shown on the news, and they are complete idiots. It made us all look so stupid for him to be our so-called "expert".)

    Embarrassing!

    It would have been so nice if they had someone even SLIGHTLY intelligent on there to discuss vaping, and that the flavors are sometimes really complex- and adults love them- that they are not marketed towards children, etc.

    Just my rant, and wondering if anyone else did see it and was as embarrassed as me to be associated with ANYTHING that this guy does/says?

    Poor choice in an "expert" was intentional - the whole bit was supposed to be anti-vaping, that's how the news rolls because people like bad news more than good news. News isn't news anymore, it's entertainment to feed to a population fascinated by mass shootings and political celebrities, and boredom with good news or any real news based on good evidence

    They are so stupid that they didn't even run a google search on the guys government name.
    Hell, I bet they didn't even bother to google "Tommy Smokes".

    The "Tommy Smokes" dude is Tom Scibelli from barstool sports who was just trolling them.

    He is claiming it was his biggest troll ever so I do believe that fox news is really that stupid.

    It amazes me daily that anybody believes a word that comes out of the corporate media's mouth, if at this point you haven't figured this out you really shouldn't be allowed to be let out in public without adult supervision much less be allowed to vote.

    Not prominent, only literally a handful of cases worldwide.
    But yes the buttery flavoring powder inhaled in the factory is supposed to have caused the affliction.
    And it is serious IF you get it.

    from wiki:

    Bronchiolitis obliterans (BO), also known as popcorn lung and constrictive bronchiolitis, is a disease that results in obstruction of the smallest airways of the lungs (bronchioles) due to inflammation.[1] Symptoms include a dry cough, shortness of breath, wheezing and feeling tired.[1] These symptoms generally get worse over weeks to months.[4] It is not related to cryptogenic organizing pneumonia, previously known as bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia.[4]

    Causes include breathing in toxic fumes, respiratory infections, connective tissue disorder or complications following a bone marrow or heart-lung transplant.[1] Symptoms may not occur until two to eight weeks following toxic exposure or infection.[1] The underlying mechanism involves inflammation that results in scar tissueformation.
    .......................................
    It seems that the inhaling of the buttery flavoring is by far the least common cause of this affliction.
    I suspect that BO caused by diacetyl is the only cases called popcorn lung.
