CDC warns against vaping as "vape lung" spreads

A man exhales vapor as he demonstrates the use of his electronic cigarette

Cuomo mentioned he would also introduce legislation banning the sale of flavored e-cigarettes which have been especially attractive to more youthful buyers.

While Arizona health officials continue to investigate, Banner Health toxicology experts recommend refraining from, or at least minimizing the use of, vape pens and other vaping devices. According to her, all of the people who are into vaping regularly are getting severely ill after their vape sessions.

Cuomo said he's not ruling out a temporary ban of all e-cigarettes, but admitted it would be hard to enforce because the products are legal under federal law. The deaths occurred in California, Illinois, Indiana, Oregon, and Minnesota.

USA health officials are still trying to determine the exact cause of the illness but have said it is not contagious.

Canadian officials are monitoring the situation in the U.S. Last week, Health Canada warned people who vape to monitor themselves for symptoms such as shortness of breath, coughing and chest pain. Other patients reported fever, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Dr. Daniel Fox of WakeMed Health & Hospitals in North Carolina noted in the telephonic forum that, "All of our patients underwent evaluation, and after the clinical evaluation we found a certain type of pneumonia that was noninfectious". The CDC has established a protocol so that other lung diseases and infections can be ruled out before the case will be linked to the investigation. No evidence of infectious diseases has been identified in these patients, therefore lung illnesses are likely associated with a chemical exposure. To that point, Delman reiterated, "At this time, no one device, product or substance has been linked to all cases".

"We are committed to finding out what is making people sick", Dr. Robert R. Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in a statement. The CDC says more than 200 cases have been reported across the country.

But those cases don't account for all of the illnesses that have been reported, meaning either that there are multiple sources of the illnesses or that officials haven't identified the actual culprit yet.

"We're proceeding from the need to review and adopt these draft laws as soon as possible", Salagai told the state-run TASS news agency in an interview published earlier Tuesday.

The AMA, one of the nation's most influential physician groups, also called on doctors to inform patients about the dangers of e-cigarettes, including toxins and carcinogens, and swiftly report any suspected cases of lung illness associated with e-cigarette use to their state or local health department. It appears to be related to vaping black-market cannabis products with THC that also contain vitamin E oil, which is harmful when inhaled.

"I am deeply concerned about the growing epidemic of e-cigarette use in our children", she wrote Monday. The department will issue subpoenas to three companies who manufacture the filler substances used in THC vaping products.
