CDC Warns: Stop Vaping As Investigation Continues

CDC Warns: Stop Vaping As Investigation Continues

A blunt-force ban, fuelled by fear, won't have the effect we want.

According to the CDC, five deaths have been linked to vaping to date while 450 other suspicious cases of lung illness are under investigation to determine if e-cigarette usage could have been a factor.

No single vaping device or e-liquid product was found to unify all of the cases studied.

Vaping has grown in popularity with the rise of e-cigarettes, which were introduced to the mass market in the U.S.in 2007. Breathing unadultered air - which is 21 per cent oxygen and 78 per cent nitrogen - is of course better than inhaling smoke or vapour containing a toxic stew of chemicals. Staining them with a dye called Oil-red-O highlighted the oily droplets littered throughout these cells.

But no one knows for sure, and Cuomo, speaking in New York City on Monday, is urging caution.

The role of public-health officials and regulators is to ensure the air we breathe and the products we consume are relatively safe and to help people to minimize the harm they do to themselves.

A newly published article in The New England Journal Of Medicine is offering the most detailed clinical insight to date into the rapidly growing vaping crisis spreading across the United States.

Last week, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study of 53 patients in Wisconsin and IL who suffered severe lung disease that appeared to have been caused by vaping.

According to the Health Department release, "it is suspected that most cases are the result of adulterated or contaminated products involving THC or other cannabinoids from marijuana". This vaping-induced condition does not look like classic lipoid pneumonia as traditionally seen on a chest X-ray, leading Albregg and his Utah team to hypothesize it could be a new form of the illness.

The large majority of those studied, 84 per cent, vaped THC (a psychoactive ingredient of cannabis), and 61 per cent vaped nicotine.

As for current illnesses linked to lung disease sweeping across the U.S., Howard maintains he's had no health complaints from Canada Vapes clients.

Individuals who may be concerned about their health after using an e-cigarette product should contact their health care provider, or the local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222. They shouldn't be able to unwittingly buy poison.

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

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the number of people vaping has increased from seven million in 2011 to 35 million in 2016 - with market research group Euromonitor estimating 55 million people will be vaping by 2021.

Vaping among Montana's youth is a serious concern.

Early studies show that there's only one thing in common to all those who have presented in emergency departments across the country with a very specific set of symptoms: the use of vaping products in some form, whether it be for smoking cannabis or nicotine.

Yet, the purchase of vaping cartridges and liquids like THC is already banned for teenagers.

"It's really these products that are made underground or made in somebody's basement, all my stuff is not made in my back room, it is made in a factory environment, clean environment, Food Drug and Administration clean environment, the problem is the people that are filling canisters with the basement bargain THC oil that's killing people", Kelleher said. What we need to do is adopt a harm-reduction mindset.

"You've seen the tobacco companies in Canada starting to get into the vaping space, and they definitely have more power than "mom-and-pop shop" people".
