US government will propose banning flavours used in e-cigarettes

Associated Press

Public health officials have said the non-tobacco flavors of e-cigarettes are appealing to young people and have contributed to a surge in teen vaping, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Melania Trump recently tweeted her concerns over the combination of children and vaping, and at the meeting, the president said, "I mean, she's got a son - together - that is a handsome, young man, and she feels very, very strongly about it".

A sixth person in the United States has died from lung disease related to vaping, Kansas health officials said Tuesday.

In an effort to combat youth nicotine consumption, the Trump administration will move forward on a plan to ban most e-cigarette flavors from store shelves. Preliminary data from the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey show that more than a quarter of high school reported using e-cigs within the preceding 30 days, according to the Health and Human Services Department.

In a release, POLFAIFA said that a "handful of farmers" led by tobacco merchants, who are suppliers to the vaping industry, were "misleading policy makers and causing confusion that banning e-cigarettes and vaping products, would lead to a tremendous loss of revenue to farmers and tobacco traders", which was not the case.

"She feels very strongly about it", he said of Mrs. Trump. "We need to do all we can to protect the public from tobacco-related disease and death, and prevent e-cigarettes from becoming an on-ramp to nicotine addiction for a generation of youth". But there is little evidence that e-cigarettes are effective for helping smokers quit.

Azar said all e-cigarette manufacturers must submit applications to the FDA by May 2020 if they wish to continue selling their products.

Todd Phillips apparently wanted Joaquin Phoenix to play Joker in his film so badly, he did everything he could to convince him. The Batman is rumored to feature half a dozen different Bat-villains , including Catwoman, Two-Face, Riddler and Penguin.

Researchers have found cancer-causing chemicals in e-cigarette vapor, such as formaldehyde. "People think it's an easy solution to cigarettes, but turns out that it has its own difficulties", said President Trump.

Vapes are back in the news as a recent spate of seemingly vape-related illnesses has sparked concern from medical professionals across the country. There can't be a lot of moms who are eager to see their teen vaping, even knowing that it beats them smoking.

While it is too early to say whether or to what extent e-cigarettes can be used to support smoking cessation, one conclusion can already be drawn: Vaping is not without health effects.

"Once the FDA would finalize this guidance, we would begin enforcement actions to remove all such products from the market place", Azar said.

Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley, or OR, who co-led a letter to the FDA earlier Wednesday calling for a flavor moratorium, said in a statement that the administration's announcement was "outrageously overdue".

Taking up a proposal from the Health Ministry, the Union cabinet may, in its meeting on Wednesday, approve an ordinance to ban manufacturing and sale of e-cigarettes. The CDC said on Friday that the lung-injury cases were appearing most often in people who used vaping products containing THC, the key psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.

"It's been clear for years that an epidemic of youth e-cigarette addiction was building", he said.
