Canada Watches Warily as Reports of Vape Pen Illnesses Increase in US

Vitamin E Found In Cannabis-Containing Vape Products Linked To Deadly Lung Infections Across US New Yorkers Are Urged To Stop Vaping ASAP

Nationally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it is aware of 450 possible cases of severe respiratory illness after vaping and at least five deaths.

More than 450 possible cases of lung illness associated with e-cigarette products had been reported to the CDC from 33 states - a list that does not include MA - and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

On Friday, the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) released a preliminary report detailing pulmonary illness related to e-cigarette use in IL and Wisconsin among 53 case patients.

In its report, CDC cautioned people against using e-cigarettes, especially those bought off the street, and advised people to stay away from vaping devices while investigators work to pinpoint exactly what's behind the illnesses. CDC indicated that many of these cases reported using illicit cannabinoid products, such as THC.

Patients have had symptoms that include cough, shortness of breath and/or chest pain that has grown worse over a period of days or weeks before admission to the hospital.

In a statement, the FDA said the illnesses may be linked to THC, the psychoactive chemical in marijuana, as well as the chemical vitamin E acetate, although the investigation is ongoing.

But many in the vaping community say there is not enough information available yet, or research conducted to discourage people from vaping all together.

On Tuesday, the DOH announced that in 2018, one in 15 public middle school students - or about 13,000 students - reported they were now using e-cigarettes, or were vaping. The serious lung injury was reported earlier this week and health officials are aggressively gathering patient information to determine the cause of the illness. In a statement, Dr. Ileana Arias of the CDC said, "Please know that we are working tirelessly to understand these and other avenues to understand these illnesses and their cause and to learn how they can be prevented".

According to Seattle & King County Public Health, it's the first confirmed vaping-related case of severe lung disease in Washington state.

It was found that most of the patients were male with a median age of 19, in a study conducted by the states of Wisconsin and IL and published in The New England Journal of Medicine. People should avoid vaping illicit THC products, as the available evidence from other states shows numerous injury cases had exposure to such products.

Kansas Department of Health and Environment secretary Dr.

Eisenhour said he believes the true problem is because people seeking e-cigarettes with THC often result to the black market and drug dealers often take advantage of it and put in harmful products.

They are also urging people who are current smokers to seek the help of a doctor, and use evidence-based treatments, such as FDA approved medications, to help them quit smoking, instead of turning to electronic cigarettes.
