Health concerns about vaping on Long Island

On the same day President Donald Trump announced flavored vaping products will be pulled from the market, citing health concerns and the rising use by teenagers, Newsday on Wednesday spoke with students and faculty at Farmingdale State College about the fast-growing vaping trend, which the university has now banned in all areas except for designated tobacco use areas. On Thursday, at a news conference at North Shore University Hospital, Jonathan Doneson of Roslyn Heights spoke about his own health issues, stating that vaping almost killed him.
