‘ It Was Horrible ’ : Newburyport Mother Says Son Developed Lung Condition From Vaping

BOSTON (CBS) – A Newburyport mother says her son’s vaping addiction got so bad, he was diagnosed with a restrictive lung condition. Cade Beauparlant was the captain of the Newburyport hockey team, until he was benched in his senior year once he was caught smoking his Juul, a popular electronic cigarette, in school. “He’d be skating and he wouldn’t even be able to skate a full shift for the hockey team without having to come off because he was so short of breath,” his mom explained.

What could I have recognized sooner? Should I have gotten him help sooner? But I honestly had no idea.” She says her son thought the Juul was just flavored water vapor. “I believe strongly that he never would’ve picked up a traditional cigarette,” she said. “But he even said it was the flavors and the social media that inspired him to give it a try.” One box of JUUL cartridges discovered by Cade’s mom (WBZ-TV) Her son Cade is now in his freshman year of college in Maine, and is still working to wean himself off the Juul. It’s stories like Cade’s that inspired...

Here, three addicted groups received morphine, methadone, and buprenorphine while the control rats received saline for 21 days. Our results demonstrated that the opioid-treated groups showed stereotyped behaviors including grooming and rearing. In the behavioral level, prepulse inhibition and preference indices were not changed significantly in the opioids-treated groups compared to those of the sali...

The introduction of the drug imatinib in 2001 revolutionized the treatment of a type of cancer called chronic myelogenous leukemia. In more than 80% of people with CML who received the drug, the disease went into complete remission.However, in most people with chronic myelogenous leukemia, cancerous stem cells remain in the body for years after their cancer has gone into remission. If treatment with imatinib or another similar medication is stopped — and in some cases, even while treatment continues — the leukemia stem cells can cause cancer to recur.Now, in experiments in mice as well as isolated human cancer ...

This study aims to demonstrate whether specific game genre, media usage, discussion of game issues, and social network (conceptualized as gamers' communicative ecology) significantly contribute to game community involvement and self-identification as a gamer in such a way that game playing is positively linked to personal identity and social interactions, which leads to the sociability of gamers.
