Mystery vaping illness clarified, vitamin E acetate under the spotlight

Mystery vaping illness clarified, vitamin E acetate under the spotlight

People who have never touched the butt of a cigarette to their lips are beginning to use a juul or other electronic smoking substitutes on a daily basis.

No single device, liquid or ingredient has been tied to all the illnesses.

Nieuwenhuis says the vaping pods also contain very high levels of nicotine. There are a patchwork of regulations across Canada now concerning sales and marketing of e-cigarette products.

All the cases that are reported by the health officials of the state have the youth involved in them. Just a week earlier, the CDC reported the number of possible cases at 215.


Cases have also been reported in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Vermont, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. Now, the CDC and other health agencies are working to determine if the cases are confirmed or probable after examining the medical records of the patients.

Anyone who vapes and starts to experience symptoms, which include shortness of breath, severe coughing, chest pain and even fever, nausea, or vomiting, should seek immediate medical care-especially if they've experienced chest pain while vaping in recent weeks.

The National Association of County and City Health Officials "has always been cautious about endorsing e-cigarettes even before the recent spate of illnesses, because little scientific evidence exists to show that e-cigarettes and other nicotine delivery devices are effective cessation devices", spokeswoman Adriane Casalotti said in a statement.

"All of our patients underwent evaluation, and after the clinical evaluation we found a certain type of pneumonia that was noninfectious", says Fox.


Most of the patients, but not all, also reported using THC-containing products, and some used a combination of THC and nicotine-containing products. CDC officials have said with some degree of confidence that there's no sign of infectious disease in the patients and the culprit is likely chemical exposure. "At this time, no one device, product, or substance has been linked to all cases".

"Centers for Disease Control and prevention br / Main US government agency for the protection of public health and public safety".

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. But a series of serious lung illnesses in regular-and, in some cases, underage e-cigarette users-has snowballed into an official warning from the Centers for Disease Control.

Juul was not one of the three companies named as targets of New York State subpoenas. "Importantly, identifying any compounds present in the samples will be one piece of the puzzle but won't necessarily answer questions about causality, which makes our ongoing work critical", he added.
