E-cigarette company Juul is now doing health research, but its first study could bring more questions than answers

On Saturday, for the first time in its roughly two-year history, e-cigarette company Juul presented some data from a clinical trial of its devices.

Regulators will ban menthol cigarettes and chip away at flavored e-cigs to combat teen vaping — but experts say their plans fall short

Federal regulators on Thursday proposed a ban on menthol cigarettes and a move to place flavored e-cigarettes like the Juul behind a stronger regulatory fence. Experts say the move doesn't go far enough. They expected an immediate ban on flavored e-cigs. Menthol and mint e-cigarettes aren't affected by the government's proposal. Earlier this week, the Silicon Valley e-cig startup Juul announced it would temporarily stop selling its flavored e-cigs in stores — a move it probably made in anticip...

Menthol and mint e-cigarettes aren't affected by the government's proposal. Earlier this week, the Silicon Valley e-cig startup Juul announced it would temporarily stop selling its flavored e-cig...

The FDA is preparing to crack down on e-cigs like the Juul — here’s why vaping is so dangerous

A handful of recent studies are beginning to reveal the possible health effects of e-cigarette use, and they are not all positive.

Researchers have found evidence of toxic metals like lead in e-cig vapor. Evidence also suggests that vaping may be linked to an increased risk of heart attacks.
