  • Trump will meet with vaping industry officials to address 'e-cigarette dilemma'

Jonathan Foulds, an addiction researcher and tobacco specialist at Penn State University, was quoted by The Associated Press as saying that a ban on flavored e-cigarettes, which have the potential to help transition away from combustible tobacco products, "could take us from potentially the single biggest improvement in public health in the United States toward a public health disaster in which cigarettes continue to be the dominant nicotine product".

CDC officials in a report released Friday announced a "breakthrough" in its investigation into what might be causing a lung illness linked to e-cigarette use and vaping. The substance has additionally been recognized in assessments by USA and state officers of product samples collected from patients with vaping harm.

US public health officials have recommended that people avoid using e-cigarettes that contain THC or any products that come from illicit sources. CDC officials tested the lung fluid samples to determine whether vitamin E acetate, petroleum distillates such as mineral oil, plant oils, and other substances had collected in the patients' lungs.

US officials said Friday this is the first time they've found a common suspect in the damaged lungs of patients. More research is also needed to prove cause and effect, she says. CDC last month reported that some patients have relapsed and had to be hospitalized a second time, with readmissions occurring from as few as five days to as many as 55 days after initial discharge. However, Anne Schuchat-CDC's principal deputy director, who is overseeing the agency's investigation into the matter-said it is possible that the lung illness made the patients more susceptible to other conditions.

E-cigarettes and other vaping devices heat a liquid into an inhalable vapour.

About two months ago, NY drew attention to vitamin E acetate when the state's public health lab discovered it in samples of vaping products from sick patients.

The samples included lung fluid from some patients who had died from the illness.

There is still more work to do and the CDC said it is continuing to test for a wide range of chemicals.

A recent report available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website outlines how use of flavored e-cigarettes increased between 2014-2018 among high school students, and from 2015-2018 among middle school students.

The "chemical of concern" that the investigation identified was vitamin E acetate. "While no definitive cause has been found, as I've said from the very beginning: if you don't know what you are smoking, don't smoke it".

The proposed flavour ban has caused an outcry among vaping businesses, who argue they strictly ID their customers to confirm their age, and say their livelihoods are at risk.
