Various states have imposed bans on marketing and selling of flavored vape products. Even President Trump has executed a similar ban citing increasing cases of vaping-related illnesses. As of today, the mysterious lung disease has diseased above 2000 people across the U.S. Before this vaping remained a fashion or a hobby. But now, it has become a fatal, dangerous, and spooky trend. On Thursday, the US health officials have announced the death of four more patients due to the mysterious lung-related illness. Even more, the CDC has reported hospitalization of more than 110 people from different states. Reportedly, two US territories and the District of Columbia, have more number of patients. Currently, more than 2,000 people have been admitted to the hospital.

She noted that a previous study from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, has revealed that switching to nicotine vaping has lessened smokers’ exposure to various carcinogens and toxicants. Remarkably, the study has discovered that across a broad range of researches and conclusions, e-cigs seem to pose minimal risk than explosive tobacco cigarettes.
Amy said diseases and deaths, which seem to have ties with vaping illegal THC oils, have triggered an arguable alarm as there is a rise in the number of youngsters who vape nicotine. The team of experts instead counsels that countrywide protocols to stop teenagers from purchasing vaping products. Even more, they suggest to control advertising tightly and marketing practices and identify contaminated products. They also warn against measures that might encourage previous smokers-opted-vapers back into the arms of Tobacco.
