Stop vaping immediately, health department warns

Stop vaping immediately, health department warns

The new tally of 25 cases in NY comes after the first vaping-linked death was suspected in IL and almost 200 vaping-related lung diseases are being investigated across the country. In many cases, patients reported using vaping products that included cannabis or THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, before falling ill. The FDA is probing 127 reports it's received of vaping associated with seizures, an inquiry the agency started after receiving reports from a young adult and the parents of two teens who used devices they said were sold by Juul Labs Inc. The first vaping-related death was reported last week in IL. The department says all affected people reported using aping liquids or oils that contained nicotine, marijuana, CBD, synthetic marijuana, or a combination.

Over the past two months, almost 200 vapers in 22 states have reported coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea and vomiting.

"Some only require oxygen support", she says, "but many of them have required devices to assist their breathing and in some cases ventilators".


Wisconsin health officials are investigating dozens of cases involving people with severe lung disease who all reported recent vaping.

'Anyone who uses e-cigarette products should not buy these products off the street (eg, e-cigarette products with THC or other cannabinoids) and should not modify e-cigarette products or add any substances to these products that are not intended by the manufacturer, ' said the CDC and FDA in a joint statement.

"We suspect adulterated or contaminated products, because these [marijuana] products have been out there for some time, and we've not seen these cases until this summer", Phillip Lamberty, a pulmonologist and critical care specialist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), told the Post.


The first instance of this lung illness was reported on June 28, according to the CDC, and the cases have been found primarily in adolescents and young adults.

Health officials are still conducting interviews with patients. "However, we are also investigating cases in which people report using both THC and nicotine products". However, e-cigarette makers and other health experts have pushed back, noting that the issue is clearly with dubious products, not vaping generally.
