However, they're anxious that young people are getting hooked onto vaping and e-cigarettes because they seem cool and less harmful.

There is little research into the long-term effects of vaping.

"This means that not only are fewer people smoking, but those who continue to smoke are smoking less", noted Dr Jackson. E-cigarettes typically contain nicotine as well as other chemicals known to damage health.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the first vaping-related death has been confirmed as a result of severe injuries to the lung on August 23. "We can't pinpoint the specific cause of these illnesses, but we know that vaping products are poorly regulated".

What scares Dr. Stevens is that from 2017 to 2018, the percentage of students nearly doubled their use to where at the end of 2018 about 20% of 12 graders and about 6% of 8 graders said they were vaping.

The patients range in age from 17 to 38-years old, with numerous 22 affected states centred in the middle and north east of the country. "I can sell it.' They can, but I think the health commissioner has to take it to a higher level", Murphy said.


Reports of severe lung ailments in teens and young adults across the nation who have also used e-cigarettes have health officials scrambling to determine what's going on.

Furthermore, West Virginia has a high rate of youth vaping.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services says that number is based on the 27 people they've interviewed to date.

First, the CDC said clinicians should always ask patients about their potential drug use (legal and illicit) as part of a general history. Government experts have not had the option to pinpoint the reason for the cases, which all have comparable manifestations and give off an impression of being connected to e-cigarettes however not a particular item or compound.

A survey that included tens of thousands of US teens found that exposure to secondhand aerosols from e-cigarettes rose from one in four students in 2015 to one in three in 2018, researchers reported in JAMA Network Open. "We are well aware of the broader issue, and I'm certainly involved in the national conversations. around what more do we need to do to strengthen our approach to vaping".

"This is a chemistry experiment that you're inhaling", she said.


The outbreak comes as youth e-cigarette use is on the rise.

"We've got to get our arms around this and determine if it's real", says Danny Avula, director of the Richmond City Health District and the Henrico County Health Department.

The patients who became ill all reported vaping in the weeks and months prior.

JUUL Labs, rubbishing the claim, said " This suit largely copies and pastes unfounded allegations previously raised in other lawsuits which we have been actively contesting for over a year".

Maryse Durette, a spokeswoman for the two agencies, said Canadian health officials have not yet seen any evidence of similar clusters occurring in Canada.
