A call for a moratorium on the sale of inhalable products

“The inflammatory response elicited by the novel coronavirus can do great damage to the essential function of lungs. People with underlying lung disease are more vulnerable to this coronavirus, including people with asthma, emphysema, lung fibrosis, and even people with high exposure to air pollution. Smoking and vaping are perfectly preventable forms of high-intensity air pollution. We strongly urge city, county, and state governments across the planet to place a temporary moratorium on the sale of all inhalable products to protect our lungs and our freedom.”

Jayshree Chander is an occupational medicine physician.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “A call for a moratorium on the sale of inhalable products.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2020/08/a-call-for-a-moratorium-on-the-sale-of-inhalable-products.html)
