Vaping might be causing seizures, according to the FDA.
The agency has received 127 reports of seizures of other neurological symptom that might be related to e-cigarettes. The cases occurred between 2010 and 2019. In addition to seizures, people reported fainting and tremors.
The FDA says it cannot determine a direct causal link between vaping and the symptoms. It encouraged people who experienced these symptoms to submit detailed reports so the agency can figure out what exactly is going on.
“Detailed information about these incidents are vital to help inform out analytics and may help us identify common risk factors and determine whether any specific e-cigarette product attributes, such as nicotine content or formulation, maybe more likely to contribute to seizures.
Juul, the most popular e-cigarette brand, maintains that its product is a less harmful alternative to cigarettes.
