Popcorn Lung

Popcorn Lung, What is it, How do you get it?

In this blog we are going to discuss popcorn lung, we shouldn't have to but it still seems to pop its ugly head up from time to time. Generally when someone uneducated starts spreading rumors of this popcorn lung and deters smokers from switching to vaping.

First things first, How do you get it?

Well you don't "end of blog" if only it was that simple. popcorn lung got its name after workers in a popcorn factory started getting a mysterious lung disease. it turned out the disease was a result from inhaling massive amounts diacetyl. Now diacetyl used to flavor popcorn. in the early stages of vaping it was found in e liquids, in fact some company's today still have trace's of diacetyl in them however these levels are still a hundred time's lower than diacetyl found in traditional cigarettes (yes you read that correctly, Cigarettes contain diacetyl) So that is when the anti vaper's started there rampage "if it contains diacetyl then it must cause popcorn lung" and unfortunately the rumor that vaping will give you popcorn lung started having a snowball effect. 

To date there have been no reported cases of popcorn lung cause by vaping.
