This teenager almost died from a vaping-related illness

“I was so sick. It’s the worst I’ve ever been.” Alexander, a 17-year-old high school junior, vaped every day for more than a year and almost died of a vaping-related illness. His lungs were filled with a white cotton-like substance, and doctors told him he narrowly avoided a coma. The number of vaping-related injuries has climbed to more than 2,000 cases in the US, concerning doctors who are trying to pinpoint the exact cause. Massachusetts responded by issuing a sweeping temporary ban of all vaping and e-cigarette products in the state, dealing a blow to those making a living by selling them.

The fight behind the drilling in LA’s urban oil fields

Los Angeles sits on top of the largest urban oil field in the United States, where oil has been extracted for almost 150 years. Hundreds of wells are still active in the city, with many located just steps away from homes, schools, churches and hospitals. 18-year-old Nalleli Cobo grew up next to a drill site and experienced nosebleeds, heart palpitations and other medical issues, which she attributes to toxic air pollutants from hazardous chemicals used in the drilling process. Now she and other activists are working to shut down the wells and move them farther from residential areas.
