We investigated the case of the mysterious vaping disease with help from Geri Sullivan, pulmonologist Dr. Louella Amos, lab director Iniobong Afia, inhalation toxicologist Prof. Ilona Jaspers and researcher Dr. Jamie Hartmann-Boyce.

Science Vs is my favorite show, because you can learn a lot, in a fun and fast way. I understand that this episode is an experiment, but it's really bad.
