Dr. Shahryar Kavoussi is interviewed on KVUE ABC News about vaping and fertility

E-cigarette use, or “vaping”, due to statements of greater safety than cigarette smoking, has become more popular among adolescents and pregnant women.  Moreover, it has been used more commonly in recent years as an alternative by individuals who are attempting cessation of cigarette smoking.  Due to a lack of long-term and second generation data, there has been increased focus on the effects of vaping on various aspects of health, including effects on fertility. The Food & Drug Administration (FDA)  and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are investigating lung-related injuries and deaths associated with the use of vaping products and have warned against the use of vaping products, particularly those containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), due to the lung-related injuries reported.  There has also been a recent increase in research regarding vaping and its effect on fertility.  Dr. Shahryar Kavoussi was interviewed by KVUE anchor Ashley Goudeau regarding the potential effects of vaping on fertility.
