Earlier this June, headlines came out across the country reporting a boy whose jaw had been crushed by an e-cigarette explosion (pictured above). Unfortunately, this boy's experience was not uncommon. According to one study, from 2015 to 2017, there were an estimated 2,035 e-cigarette explosion and burn injuries that were treated in US hospitals, and in the last two years, there have been at least two deaths caused by e-cigarette explosions. Overall an e-cigarette addiction is expensive, unhealthy, and could potentially result in injury or death by explosion.
