CDC Warning: Stop vaping

CDC Warning: Stop vaping

Health officials say the investigation has not identified any specific vaping or e-cigarette products linked to all cases, but many patients report using products containing cannabinoid products, such as tetrahydrocannabinol.

An Illinois adult became the first person to die of a new emergence of lung disease related to vaping on August 23, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health.

"This investigation is ongoing and has not identified a cause, but all reported cases have a history of using e-cigarette products".

"Consumers are urged to avoid buying vaping products on the street, and to refrain from using THC oil or modifying/adding any substances to products purchased in stores", the Federal Drug Administration said in a statement last week.

The report pointed out that patients tend to arrive at hospital short of breath and coughing, and many have also had fevers, general fatigue and gastrointestinal problems. "At least one vitamin E acetate containing vape product has been linked to each patient who submitted a product for testing", the NY health department statement said. "Candy-flavored liquids and intentional marketing tactics are clearly being used to attract and addict young people to vaping".

Industry leader Juul has recently come under fire for advertising its vaping products as safer alternatives to traditional cigarettes, a claim which it has not proven to the FDA.

'It is time to stop vaping.' KDHE Secretary Lee Norman stated.

But lawmakers are expected Monday to reject Johnson's call for an election. Johnson booted them from the Conservative party. He wants an election to break the deadlock.

"Everything out there so far has not proven anything as far as one way or the other, but everything they're seeing now is black market products that aren't registered, things with vitamin E in them", Todd said.

On Tuesday, the DOH announced that in 2018, one in 15 public middle school students - or about 13,000 students - reported they were now using e-cigarettes, or were vaping.

Pennsylvania's Department of Health is working with poison control centers in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of this widespread investigation. "Don't put yourself in harm's way, and please follow the recommendations of public health officials".

Health officials are urging people to stop vaping and to get medical care if they have trouble breathing or chest pain after vaping.

"Unfortunately, we don't know very much", Culbert said. "You wouldn't say that the heroin epidemic is caused by syringes, anymore than you can say that the vaping epidemic is caused by any particular vaping product", David Eisenhour, CEO of Delmar Vaping Lounge said.

NY health officials are also investigating a link with the chemical vitamin E acetate that's used as a thickening agent in vape liquids.

State health officials are also investigating what Forbing-Orr calls three additional unconfirmed cases. According to the CDC, some patients reported symptoms developing only over a few days and others developed over several weeks.
