    I found this very confusing as to what it was trying to say about e-cigarettes and Lupus. That it triggers just like cigarettes or that it’s mainly the other carcinogens in cigarettes that exacerbate Lupus?

      Hi Summer, Thanks for reading and your question. Looking at the research, there seem to be outstanding questions about the safety of e-cigarettes, though the risks may be different than traditional smoking. While e-cigarettes introduce the body to fewer carcinogens than traditional cigarettes, there are still concerns over the impact of nicotine and/or nicotine toxicity.
      The FDA released a special announcement on April 3, 2019 about seizures and e-cigarettes. And here is some additional info on the risks associated with nicotine.
