Breakthrough in CDC Vaping Illness Case Vitamin E Acetate Major Culprit

U.S. CDC reports 'breakthrough' in vaping lung injury probe

Health officials said vitamin E acetate, often used as a thickening agent in THC-infused vaping products, is the first tentative clue to the outbreak.

According to the CDC, analyses of samples of fluid collected from the lungs of 29 patients in 10 states identified vitamin E acetate in all the samples.

In the wake of these injuries, some states and towns have placed restrictions on revenue of vaping products and solutions.

"[Polling data] does strongly indicate that among the 14 million adults who use vaping products, a large number of them could be driven to be single issue voters on the issue of continued availability of flavors", says Greg Conley, president of the American Vaping Association. The vitamin is understood to be safe as a vitamin pill or to use on the skin. "This kind of assay development takes time". But it also cautions that it needs more answers to fully explain the mysterious illness that has sickened 2,051 people and killed 40.

He also gushed about Khloe's work on her show, Revenge Body , writing, "So proud of all you have accomplished this year". We just move on, but we don't really talk about things that happened, and I don't really know if that's healthy or not.


The FDA initially raised suspicion that the vitamin supplement was causing a surge in lung illnesses back in September, saying it had found it in cannabis products used by many people who had gotten sick over the summer. But taking it in the form of an aerosol proves to be detrimental to health.

Scientists are unsure why e-cigarettes cause similar changes in heart health, even though they contain fewer harmful chemicals than standard cigarettes.

E-cigarette users also experience a decrease in blood flow to the heart muscle, the second study says.

Trump said on Friday the administration would announce the next steps in its action to curb youth use of the devices this week, including raising the legal age to buy tobacco products to 21.

There have been three deaths each confirmed in California, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts and Minnesota and two deaths each in Kansas, Oregon and Tennessee. As of November 5, there have 2,051 EVALI cases reported to the CDC across 49 USA states, along with 39 deaths. And tests of vaping products linked to cases of EVALI have found vitamin E acetate. However, none of those were found in the samples tested by the agency.

While federal health officials have yet to point out any one compound or ingredient that caused at least 39 vaping deaths and more than 2,000 illnesses nationwide, the agency pointed its finger Friday at vitamin E acetate as the "chemical of concern". The injuries have happened to patients in every state in the country with the exception of Alaska.

Together, the findings reinforce public health officials' recommendation that people avoid using e-cigarettes that contain THC or any products that come from illicit sources.

To better understand the potentially unsafe consequences of e-cigarettes, Rader, Cheng and investigators in the Human Physiology Laboratory at the Smidt Heart Institute plan on studying the mechanisms underlying changes in heart and blood vessel flow seen in their work to-date, as well as the effects of e-cigarette use across a more diverse population of study participants including those with existing cardiovascular risk. MI became the first state to ban flavored nicotine vaping products in October. Initially, vaping was thought to be less hazardous than smoking because there is no combustion of tobacco or the paper wrapping of a cigarette.
