The American Lung Association, a respected advocate for lung health, has recently taken a bold stance in the ongoing debate surrounding vaping and electronic cigarettes. In a surprising turn of events, the association has demanded that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) deliberately mislead the public about vaping. This controversial move has sparked intense discussions and raises important questions about the intersection of public health, scientific evidence, and policy decisions.
