and you want us to get het up about 153 sick people instead of a half million dead?
It's quite possible to be concerned about both.

You might have a point if 1) there were no other pathways for quitting smoking, 2) everyone who vapes does so to quit smoking, and 3) the recently identified 153 cases were the total number of people to be harmed by vaping both now and in coming years.

Your argument makes about as much sense as saying we should ignore mass shootings, since vastly greater numbers of people die from smoking-related causes.
