Mass. health officials: Clinicians must immediately report any vaping-related illness

Vitamin E Found In Cannabis-Containing Vape Products Linked To Deadly Lung Infections Across US New Yorkers Are Urged To Stop Vaping ASAP

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health is mandating that clinicians report any suspected cases of " unexplained e-cigarette or vaping-associated" lung disease to state health officials.

CDC explained that the investigation is focusing on lab tests from NY state health officials that showed vitamin E acetate in numerous cannabis e-cigarette cartridges that caused sickness.

"Consumers are urged to avoid buying vaping products on the street, and to refrain from using THC oil or modifying/adding any substances to products purchased in stores", the Federal Drug Administration said in a statement last week. Lee Norman says he's extremely alarmed.

But many in the vaping community say there is not enough information available yet, or research conducted to discourage people from vaping all together.

On Monday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo directed his state's health department to subpoena the records of three marketers and sellers of thickening agents used in black market vaping products.

It added that the rapid and worrisome increase has prompted a Congressional hearing on the matter, scheduled for later this month. Nationally, symptoms among cases included shortness of breath, fever, cough, and vomiting and diarrhea.

'We agree with the FDA, ' said George Conley, president of the American Vaping Association.

Nationally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it is aware of 450 possible cases of severe respiratory illness after vaping and at least five deaths. "If you do use e-cigarette products and you experience symptoms like those reported in this outbreak, seek medical care promptly".

A sixth person has died from a vaping-related illness in the United States.

Vapes and e-cigarettes have grown in popularity in recent years.

Numerous reported illnesses involved vaping products, including cannabis products, containing vitamin E acetate, an oil derived from vitamin E that can be risky if inhaled. The patients who have this are admitted to hospitals, many of them to the intensive care unit, and many of them are winding up on a ventilator until they can get through it. "Don't put yourself in harm's way, and please follow the recommendations of public health officials".

Health authorities in the U.S. are conducting an investigation into the outbreak of lung illness associated with using e-cigarette products. According to the CDC, some patients reported symptoms developing only over a few days and others developed over several weeks.

CDC authorities said some labs have recognized vitamin E acetate in product sample, so are researching it as a possible cause of disease. Marketed as a safe way for cigarette users to cut back on tobacco, certain companies have been at the forefront of backlash from health officials and the media about their negative health effects-especially for youth and young adults.
