Could you possibly link the article? I would be interested in reading it and know who authored the article, what studies were involved and so forth.
From the AAFA
At least 30% of adult asthma cases are triggered by allergies. People who are allergic to cats may have an increased risk for developing adult onset asthma. Exposure to allergens or irritants such as cigarette smoke, chemicals, mold, dust, or other substances commonly found in the person’s environment (e.g. home or work place) might trigger the first asthma symptoms in an adult.
Prolonged exposure to certain workplace materials may set off asthma symptoms in adults.
Different illnesses, viruses, or infections can be a factor in adult onset asthma. A bad cold or a bout with the flu is often a factor in adult onset asthma.
Smoking does not cause adult onset asthma; however, if you smoke or if you are exposed to cigarette smoke (second-hand smoke), it may provoke asthma symptoms.

On another vaping forum I visit I am seeing an alarming number of illnesses that occur after qutting smoking and the start of using ecigs. Some of these illnesses seem impossible to be vape related, but they can’t be ruled out. There is not enough data out there and vaping is still in it’s infancy.
If it were me, I would seek the advice of a medical doctor. If I felt like vaping was causing health related issues for me, I would make a lifestyle change that would not include vaping.
I smoked off and on from the time I was 15 to about age 42. I am about 70 pounds over weight and I don’t exercise. I occasionally have reflux if I eat a late meal at night or a spicy meal. I occasionally wheeze. I don’t attribute the reflux or wheezing to vaping. I wheezed when I was a smoker and 70 pounds overweight and I had reflux when I was a smoker for the same reasons as I stated above.
