USA doctors urge public to quit vaping as deaths, illnesses rise

In addition to concerns over the newly emerged disease, Health advises that e-cigarette products should not be used by youth, pregnant women or individuals who do not now use tobacco.

Numerous cases involve teens, some of whom have come forward to describe their illnesses and subsequent hospitalizations in a bid to decrease use among their peers.

In its Monday statement, the Israeli Health Ministry took note of the initial U.S. findings. In all 34 cases recorded in NY, patients reported using at least one cannabis-containing vape product before becoming ill. "Inappropriate use may cause death".

"I am deeply concerned about the growing epidemic of e-cigarette use in our children", she wrote Monday. They are sold commercially, and are marketed as safer ways to consume tobacco and marijuana than through burning in a cigarette. We must not stand by while e-cigarettes continue to go unregulated.

In another video, the ministry's Deputy Director General Itamar Grotto says he is "in direct contact with the FDA" as the ministry "follows the investigation closely".

The investigation has not identified any specific substance or e-cigarette product linked to all cases, but the CDC said many patients reported using e-cigarette products with liquids that contained cannabinoid products such as THC. "For example, there are many CBD skin care oils marketed online that contain vitamin E acetate and other oils in addition to CBD". But almost 20 percent of the patients inhaled substances like nicotine from e-cigarettes. "At least one vitamin E acetate containing vape product has been linked to each patient who submitted a product for testing", the NY health department statement said.

"We don't know what a lot of these substances are and you have an alarming rate of illness", Cuomo said.

Symptoms have included shortness of breath, fatigue, chest pain and vomiting.

Reports of health problems appear to have increased quickly over the past month.

US health officials have been tracking the illness throughout the nation for several weeks.

It is unclear whether such illnesses were happening before this year. Five of those cases were reported just Monday morning.

Dr. Deena Hinshaw, the province's chief medical officer of health, said in light of the cases in the US she is reinforcing a message that there a risks to vaping. Deaths previously were reported in IL and Oregon.

With cases of vaping-related illnesses and deaths on the rise in the United States, Ontario Minister of Health Christine Elliott is seeking advice from experts on how to reduce negative health impacts of e-cigarettes on youth.

Officials have emphasized that it is not yet certain that vitamin E acetate is the cause of the illnesses.

There are now 33 states with reported cases of severe respiratory illness from e-cigarettes.

Also on Friday, The New England Journal of Medicine published reports on e-cigarette-related illnesses in three states: Illinois, Wisconsin and Utah.
