U.S. doctors' group says just stop vaping as deaths, illnesses rise

And, make no mistake, we are still dealing with tobacco companies here. They are sold commercially, and are marketed as safer ways to consume tobacco and marijuana than through burning in a cigarette. "Are they scavenging debris in the lungs that was introduced through vaping?". Previous year the percentage of teenagers using nicotine grew at the fastest rate ever recorded for an addictive substance, according to a survey funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. More research needs to be done on the long-term impacts, but the CDC has stated that the aerosol used in e-cigarettes contains harmful substances such as nicotine, lead products and cancer-causing agents. One pulmonologist in Salt Lake City, Utah said in her patients, the breathing troubles always followed the gastrointestinal issues.

E-Liquids, which are used for vaping in electronic cigarettes, are regularly marketed with bright colours. Thanks to a lawsuit from leading health groups, a judge ruled recently that the FDA needs to speed up its timeline for reviewing the public health risks of e-cigarettes. Many of these particles contain varying amounts of toxic chemicals, which have been linked to cancer, as well as respiratory and heart disease.

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.

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.

"CDC, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), state and local health departments, and other clinical and public health partners are investigating a multistate outbreak of severe pulmonary disease associated with e-cigarette product (devices, liquids, refill pods, and/or cartridges) use".

US public health officials on Friday announced that they are investigating about 450 cases of the illness across 33 states and one USA territory, including 41 cases in the state of NY.

Numerous cases involve teens, some of whom have come forward to describe their illnesses and subsequent hospitalizations in a bid to decrease use among their peers. Even when vapor is nicotine-free, it may carry other heart health risks.

It's nearly a similar sequence which the ISRO is going to implement, with practically no real-time controls on the ground. The rover carries two payloads to enhance the understanding of the lunar surface.


CDC in a release issued Friday recommended that individuals consider abstaining from e-cigarettes entirely.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it's probing more than 450 cases of lung illnesses related to vaping since August 1st. He also called for legislation banning flavored e-cigarettes, which have been criticized by health advocates as a way to hook children. No evidence of infectious diseases has been identified in these patients, therefore lung illnesses are likely associated with a chemical exposure. "In response, we are looking at what the situation is here in Ontario and what can and should be done to protect the health of young Ontarians".

They are supposed to have our backs!

The CDC and FDA are now working together to gather all relevant information and are expected to release a report in the New England Journal of Medicine outlining the specifics of the disease they're studying, believed to be linked to e-cigarettes. I don't think so, Ms. Burwell! According to the CDC, while e-cigarettes have the potential to benefit some people and harm others, scientists still have a lot to learn about whether e-cigarettes are effective for quitting smoking.

She says many who vape have tried nicotine patches or gum to wean themselves from smoking, but have found those products don't work for them.

Last week, MI became the first state to ban the sale of vaping products for six months.
