‘She was in a lot of pain’: Call for ban on flavoured vapes popular with young Australians

health charity is calling for a ban on the over-the-counter sale of vapes, after finding harmful chemicals including disinfectant, petroleum and fish euthanasia drugs inside the electronic smoking devices.
Lung Foundation Australia wants action on the sale of vapes, also known as e-cigarettes, which are largely unregulated but, with colourful packaging and fruity flavours, mostly aimed at young people.
Research by Curtin University and partly funded by the foundation found all of more than 50 vapes bought over the counter contained chemicals with “unknown effects on respiratory health”.
