NV Attorney General warns against street-sold vaping products

NV Attorney General warns against street-sold vaping products

The attorney general will be occupied by law enforcement and education officials, according to a news release.

The state Department of Health announced the new tally Tuesday, a rise in the 76 cases reported earlier. In Colorado, there have been eight reported vaping related illnesses this year, with just over half becoming hospitalized.

The most common ingredients are propylene glycol, a solvent that has been known to cause lung damage; glycerol, a byproduct of soap manufacturing; and, of course, nicotine, the widely known and highly addictive substance that can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, infertility and respiratory illness, to name only a few. "It may take a few months to really understand the portion of illness that's due to some risky practice in the preparation of these materials or other causes", she said.

In particular, THC vaping products obtained "off the street" or from family members or friends "play a major role in the outbreak", the CDC conclude. According to the Post, that recommendation is narrower than CDC's previous recommendation that people abstain from all e-cigarette and vaping products.

So what exactly went down in this dramatic online event? But more rockets began to appear, coming out of more and more portals. They all focused in on an astroid frozen in time that had been looming above the map for most of season 10.


CDC issued on Friday updated interim clinical guidance for health care providers caring for individuals with lung injury associated with use of e-cigarette, or vaping, products. "It advises close follow-up of these patients, as some patients who initially had mild symptoms experienced a rapid worsening of symptoms within 48 hours".

Travis said the CHCC Tobacco Cessation Program also offers cessation services including counseling and nicotine replacement therapy. There have been 18 deaths so far, CDC said.

Patients from multiple states in this investigation have reported symptoms including shortness of breath, cough or chest pain; nausea, vomiting or diarrhea; or fatigue fever or abdominal pain.

"Therefore, the possibility that nicotine-containing products play a role in this outbreak can not be excluded", the CDC say, which is why they recommend "that people consider refraining from using e-cigarette, or vaping, products that contain nicotine".
