US health officials urge people to stop vaping as third death reported

Earlier this week the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, USA, confirmed the first death following an outbreak of severe lung disease in those who use e-cigarettes or vaping devices.

They also believe that the "lung illnesses are likely associated with a chemical exposure", Meaney-Delman said. "E-cigarettes are not safe for youth, young adults, pregnant women, or adults who do not now use tobacco products". In addition, the agency is probing 450 cases of lung illness that may have been caused by e-cigarette use around the country.

For that reason, doctors and health officials are continuing to suggest people stay away from all vaping products until the investigation establishes exactly what is at the root of the illnesses. So far, the only thing that is common in these cases is the use of e-cigarettes. The department did not clarify how many may be related to using vapes containing cannabis.

"There's not enough action taken by our politicians", said Mr Tim Johnson during a news conference in IL on Thursday (Sept 5) after his daughter fell ill with a lung illness believed to have been caused by vaping. The health researchers of the Government are trying to find out whether an oil derived from Vitamin E- found in marijuana vaping products from patients throughout the nation who got sick, maybe the reason behind the illness.

Vaping in the US has been gaining in popularity for a few years now, so much so that selling e-cigarette devices and their liquid has become a booming business - Lamar County has at least three such stores.

Situation of 12 PH crew of tugboat seized in Iran being monitored
The incident came as a response to the British seizure of an Iranian tanker in Gibraltar. Reports indicated that the tugboat was seized because of alleged oil smuggling.

Officials urged people to avoid vaping illicit THC products, and people with a history of vaping who are experiencing lung injury symptoms were advised to seek medical care. A week ago, USA officials pegged the number at 215 possible cases in 25 states. Specifically, that the two primary ingredients found in e-cigarettes - propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin - are toxic, and that vaping produces several unsafe chemicals including acetaldehyde, acrolein and formaldehyde, which can cause lung and cardiovascular disease.

"CDC officials said that many but not all of the reported and confirmed cases involved both THC - the psychoactive chemical in marijuana - and nicotine vaping".

"Right now, because we cannot pin down exactly what that issue is, the CDC has basically given us guidance that if you're vaping or using e-cigarettes at this time you may want to consider not doing this until we can figure out what is happening", said Dr. Kristina Box, the IN state health commissioner.

The officials said this now "a key focus" of the investigation.
