As flu season approaches, it is always recommended that we take our yearly flu shots, but do you think they actually make you feel better or worse? I want to red personal opinions.

E-cigarettes have been a social media craze over the past few years. However, for Michiganders, that stops. Michigan has successfully become to first state to ban E-cigarettes. This may be sad for others, however, vaping is a very dangerous game to play with. How you think this will go with the citizens of Michigan? Will more people try to illegally vape? Will this start a huge controversy that nobody is ready for? Will the cigarette stocks go back up in the Market? https://www.publicnewsservice.org/2019-09-05/health-issues/michigan-becomes-first-state-to-ban-flavored-e-cigarettes/a67668-1

Dangers of Vaping: 17-year-old undergoes double lung transplant

Vaping is a huge issue in society today, especially for adolescents. Vaping was created in order to help people to stop smoking cigarettes, as it is a healthier alternative. However, many adolescents do not vape for this reason. Recently, the dangers of vaping have been exposed in the media. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “E-cigarette or vaping-associated lung injury, also referred to as EVALI, has sickened more than 2,000 people in the U.S.” On top of this, there is not much known about the long term effects vaping can have on people.

A hotel in Michigan is offering free stays and transport for women traveling to the state to have an abortion. The Yale Hotel launched the offer following a spate of restrictive abortion laws that have been passed in conservative US states such as Ohio, Missouri, Georgia and Alabama, which voted for a near-total ban on terminations, including in cases of rape and incest.

Flu Season Turns Deadly, Yet Most Of Michigan Will Not Get The Shot

Just yesterday, a 69-year-old man passed away and became the first Michigan resident to pass away from influenza this year. This is deeply saddening, yet an important reminder of how serious of a disease the flu can be. The flu vaccine is highly effective in preventing the flu, yet not enough Michigan residents have access to the vaccine.

Vaping: The illnesses and controversies as the death toll climbs In recent months, thousands of people have ended up in the hospital due to severe lung illnesses and other health problems after vaping -- and at least 39 people have died. It's clear we're just starting to understand the dangers of vaping. With Michigan attempting to ban the use of e-cigs, news coverage shows us more and more that something must be done to counter the use of e-cigs now! Trump administration reportedly considers ban on flavored vapes What do you guys think?

Michigan Mirrors Nation in Kids Losing Health Coverage

In the last two years, the percentage of children without health care insurance has risen, in Michigan and nationwide—which is very disappointing and sad. 3.4% of Michigan's children, or about 79,000 children, have no health insurance. The number of uninsured children increased by 400,000 nationwide in 2016 and 2018, and blames the trump administration’s efforts to “dismantle Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act, as well as President Donald Trump's anti-immigrant policies, which have led many parents to remove their children from government programs.” Do you agree with this?
