U.S. doctors group says just stop vaping as deaths, illnesses rise

Study Finds That the Vast Majority of Respiratory Diseases in Vapers Are Linked to Illegal THC Products

Study Finds That the Vast Majority of Respiratory Diseases in Vapers Are Linked to Illegal THC Products

Like many people, senior risk management insurance major Hunter Henson knows the possible dangers of e-cigarette usage but continues to use a juul anyways. So far, public health officials have reported a total of five patient deaths believed to be tied to the illness. 8, 450 lung illnesses have been linked to vaping, according to the Centers for Disease Control. There's evidence they can damage the lungs, and they're also a path to nicotine addiction.

NY officials on Monday announced plans to strengthen regulations of vaping and e-cigarette products amid heightened public health concerns surrounding the use of the products. The deaths were reported in California, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Oregon.

A man exhales while smoking an e-cigarette in Portland, Maine, Aug. 28, 2019. "While it is unclear what substances are causing injury, when you use these products with other chemicals, you may not know everything that you're inhaling and the harm it can cause". Nicotine is found in many plants, including tobacco.

E-cigarettes are devices that deliver an aerosol to the user through liquid heating.

Nicole Aune, a program manager for the Montana Tobacco Use Prevention Program, says nicotine damages developing brains, and parents should be on the lookout for vaping devices, which are easy to hide.

People who do use them should watch for symptoms like a cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea and vomiting. Some have been sick to the stomach, felt very exhausted, suffered weight loss or developed high body temperatures.

A public health professor is warning a ban on e-cigarettes in Canada could create a black market for the product, and suggests stricter regulations are a better way to curb the surge in popularity of vaping amongst youth.

Health authorities in Canada are closely monitoring increasing reports in the United States of respiratory illnesses in hundreds of people, mostly teenagers, potentially linked to vaping.

There was also a lot of talk about vitamin E acetate, which was identified in high levels in nearly all of the cannabis-containing samples analyzed by the New York Department of Health. This research looked at six cases in Utah and found all patients displayed a unique kind of immune cell collecting in their lungs.

Checks in NY discovered vitamin E acetate is made use of as filler, producing up as substantially as 50% of the e-cigarette. Illinois, with 49 now confirmed or suspected cases, was the first state to report a death likely linked to vaping.

Howard launched his vaping operation in 2010, after his personal use of e-cigarettes helped him kick his 20-year smoking habit.

Numerous cases involve teens, some of whom have come forward to describe their illnesses and subsequent hospitalizations in a bid to decrease use among their peers.

"While this investigation is ongoing, consider not using e-cigarette products, "the CDC said in a statement on its website".

Doctor David Christiani is with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in MA. He noted, "Although more investigation is needed to determine the vaping agent or agents responsible, there is clearly an epidemic that begs for an urgent response".

The tweet ended with a mention of the Department of Health and Human Services, and quickly gained thousands of likes and retweets.

"Health officials can target imports and conduct blitzes at global mail facilities to try and capture, shut down more illegal and counterfeit vapes and source some of the unsafe products".

With no cases of serious side-effects reported in the UK, Deborah Arnott, the chief executive of Action on Smoking and Health, has simply advised British vapers to ensure they're buying legal products.

The governor called the rise in vaping related illness a "frightening public health phenomenon". But she added there has been a marked increase since last spring.

Although Summers worries for the health of her family and friends, she doesn't try to convince them to quit using e-cigarettes.

In Orange County, 27.5 percent of high school students and 13.4 percent of middle school students have tried vaping at some point.

She added, "This is too important".
