NY officials warn people to stop vaping amid rising illnesses

Study Finds That the Vast Majority of Respiratory Diseases in Vapers Are Linked to Illegal THC Products Vaping concerns in Canada after US deaths, illness

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, said on Friday that officials are investigating severe pulmonary disease cases linked to e-cigarette use.

Health officials caution citizens against using vape products.

Until 2016, e-cigarettes were freely able to enter the market without any premarket approval by the FDA.

"[Canada] hasn't actually implemented really basic important aspects of things like telling consumers these might be harmful, in terms of health warnings", he said.

David Hammond, a professor at the University of Waterloo and an expert on tobacco control policy, said the Federal Tobacco Control Strategy needs a re-think in a changing nicotine market. However, many patients reported using e-cigarette products with liquids that contain cannabinoid products (such as THC), the CDC said.

"Never will there be any Vitamin E oil in anything we're selling, ever", Cross said.

The flavourings in electronic cigarettes may damage blood vessels in the same way as heart disease, according to research published in June.

In Kings County, where eight cases were reported in July and August, public health officials found that the victims had purchased unlicensed vaping products from "pop-up" cannabis dealers. "And common sense says if you don't know what you are smoking, don't smoke it". After researchers found lipoid pneumonia's marker, lipid-laden macrophages, in the patient, they performed bronchoalveolar lavage in several others they believed had a vaping-related illness. "After achieving all-time low smoking rates, these misleading statements will cost thousands of lives when New Yorkers return to cigarettes", says the organization's Spike Babaian.

She says vaping is becoming an epidemic, and that parents should inform themselves about the issue, then sit down with their teens and have a serious talk about the potentially catastrophic consequences of vaping. The professor does acknowledge the challenges in regulating the vaping industry, likening it to "grabbing the tiger by the tail", because it's changing so rapidly.

In its briefing on Friday, CDC officials again stressed these cases aren't tied to a single e-cigarette product or ingredient.

"I haven't seen it on campus, but off campus and at parties", she said. "It is an antioxidant, and may burn and disintegrate when heated in an e-cigarette, releasing toxicants".

Lebanon's Hezbollah says it downed Israeli drone

Here’s Why Apple’s Own Apps Dominate App Store Searches
Mind you, the App Store generated over $50 billion in sales past year , with over 60% of that money coming from direct searches. Some searches produced as many as 14 Apple apps before showing results from rivals, the analysis showed.

E-cigarette use, also known as vaping, has become popular across all ages.

E-cigarettes and vaping, was supposed to be a safer alternative to tobacco smoking, and even help wean people off tobacco.

Despite his belief that e-cigarettes benefit smokers, Howard welcomes the idea of stricter vaping regulations.

Unfortunately, this addiction has also proved to be fatal for some people involved in it and they ended up dying due to vaping.

Hammond agrees that marketing has played a significant role in the rising popularity of vaping. In addition to prohibiting vaping on school grounds in ME, state lawmakers also passed legislation last session to equalize the tax on all tobacco products so that e-cigarettes are taxed according to the same standard as cigarettes.

"This is a frightening public health phenomenon", Cuomo said.

Conversely, Hammond expressed concerns around the allure of vaping to teenagers.

"It scared me into quitting", she said.

Nova Scotia's chief medical officer of health has said he is sending informal email inquiries to respiratory specialists and intensive care units at Nova Scotia hospitals to see if there are any similar cases to what is happening in the U.S.

"What that is, I don't know".
