Hi,
Just Fyi, I am a gynecologist so I don't handle these problems, but my internal medicine MD friends have been admitting young healthy adults to the hospital for chemical induced pneumonia. When you vape, the oils are inhaled and can cause a foreign body type of pneumonia. So vaping may not be so 'safe' as the salesmen might make you think.
If this causes a pneumonia acutely in some people, you have to wonder what the chronic exposure to these oils in you lungs could do....
Just my extra 2 cents.

Thanks for the research and sharing what you found. I shared your post on facebook and got a lot of comments from friends about the situation.

There is a relevant article in today's NYTimes, https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/23/health/e-cigarettes-smoking-fda-tobacco.html
