Three more deaths and at least 450 illnesses linked to vaping

Three more deaths and at least 450 illnesses linked to vaping”

In addition to deaths confirmed by the CDC in IL and Oregon, Indiana, Minnesota, and Los Angeles health officials announced additional deaths on Friday.

The federal health organization urged Americans to stop using e-cigarettes while it - along with the Food and Drug Administration and state officials - investigate the respiratory problems that have impacted residents in 33 states and one jurisdiction.

Three deaths in Indiana, Minnesota and California were verified by the CDC Friday-after the first and second vaping-related deaths in OR and IL at the end of August.

"People are coming down with some shortness of breath some cough maybe fever they could have nausea vomiting which rapidly progresses to a severe lung disease that is causing them to have to be hospitalized", said Dr. Muntu Davis, the county's health officer.

"While this investigation is ongoing, people should consider not using e-cigarette products", the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in an statement.

Cannabis vape cartridges, not cigarette-replacing nicotine vape cartridges, appear to be associated with a majority of the cases but numerous affected individuals may have used both types of vape cartridges.

An article on 53 illnesses in IL and Wisconsin noted almost one-fifth of cases were people who said they vaped nicotine alone, and nothing containing marijuana oils. Some used e-cigarettes with only nicotine, while others primarily used marijuana-based products.

CDC officials said an investigation into vaping-related cases nationwide found "clinical similarities among those affected".

Dr Meaney Delman said the CDC suspects a chemical exposure is responsible for the lung injuries but no "device, product or substance" has been identified as the cause.

Health authorities in NY state said on Thursday that almost all THC-containing vaping products they tested also contained vitamin E acetate, a substance that can be harmful when inhaled.

NY state has focused its investigation on an ingredient called Vitamin E acetate, which has been used to thicken marijuana vape juice but is considered unsafe if heated and inhaled.

"We are leaving no stone unturned in following any potential leads, including Vitamin E acetate found in numerous samples containing THC, and we're committed to taking appropriate actions as the facts emerge", FDA Commissioner Dr. Ned Sharpless said on Twitter.

Five people have died from vaping-related lung disease as the number of total cases in the USA tops 450. According to the New York Times, these health cases appear to be caused by a new change in vaping or vape products, not the long-term impact of vaping, which is still unknown.

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams was the keynote speaker at the National Conference on Tobacco or Health last month in Minneapolis.

Severe pulmonary disease related to vaping has taken another casualty in the United States, bringing the total death up to three. Additionally, no youth should be using any vaping product, regardless of the substance.
