In the article “The Mysterious Vaping Illness That’s ‘Becoming an Epidemic'” by Sheila Kaplan and Matt Richtel discuss the issues and dangers of vaping, e-cigarettes and THC oil. There have been multiple cases where physicians across the country have dealt with over a hundred patients with life-treating vaping-related illnesses. Vaping amongst those I’m their late teens or 20s are experiencing shortness of breath, severe vomiting, fatigue and fever. Health investigators are currently trying to detect if whether any type of substance has evaded into the supply of these e-cigarette products. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has warned teenagers and others about the dangers of vaping and have told then to stop buying unauthorized cannabis and e-cigarette products. Kaplan and Richtel exemplify that many vaping ingredients are not listed on the product itself. For example, Vitamin E oil. Inhaling these oils in the lungs is very dangerous and can result in death. Apparently, e-cigarette users and supporters consider them a safer substitution to smoking regular cigarettes. These products are causing severe lung diseases in young people that regular cigarettes don’t even cause. Other patients are suffering from lipoid pneumonia, which is inflammation and buildup of liquids in the lungs. The FDA stated that liquid nicotine and THC can contain harmful oils that can damage the lungs when smoked into a mixture of unknown chemicals. Mr. Eissenberg, who is researching vaping says that the FDA should test every single liquid to see if they have any oils.

    I get considerable information from this summary, Imagination, but not much Purpose. When summarizing for an opinion argument, the author (that’s you!) is in control of the information and can emphasize whatever helps make a case.
