Centre to bring ordinance to ban e-cigarettes in country

This week, in Kansas, a 50-year-old woman with health problems died from lung disease related to vaping, marking the sixth death linked to e-cigarettes since August.

Early September the Kentucky Department for Public Health released a letter to healthcare providers warning of the "possibility of seeing patients with progressive, severe pulmonary disease related to the use of e-cigarettes or 'vaping'".

State health officials are urging anyone experiencing any type of chest pain or difficulty breathing after using e-cigarettes or vaping to seek immediate medical attention.

At least 450 people in 33 states have been sickened by a severe lung illness after vaping nicotine or cannabis-related products, according to figures compiled by the Centers for Disease Control.

US health officials are investigating what might be causing hundreds of serious breathing illnesses in people who use e-cigarettes and vaping devices.

Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton says the state is providing schools, parents and students with information about the dangers of vaping, and free vaping cessation treatments. The recent deaths across our country, combined with hundreds of reported lung injury cases continue to intensify.

USA health agencies are urging people to stop vaping while they investigate why e-cigarette users are dying.

Billionaire and former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg on Tuesday announced a $160 million campaign to ban flavored e-cigarettes in the United States following a spike in vaping deaths.

CDC authorities said some labs have recognized vitamin E acetate in product sample, so are researching it as a possible cause of disease.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention is also urging people to give up vaping and e-cigarettes. "The CDC and the Surgeon General agree that the use of c-cigarettes by kids, teens and young adults is unsafe".

San Francisco, the home of market leader Juul Labs, became the first American city to ban e-cigarettes in June past year.

It also suggested they collect vaping fluids and devices that the patient used for more research.

The symptoms of these illnesses include cough, fever, shortness of breath, diarrhea and vomiting. "However, and I really want to stress this, more information is needed to determine which specific products or substances are involved". To date, there have been no confirmed cases in Hawai'i of lung injuries associated with vaping.

Some cases reported using only products that contained nicotine.

The Australian National Drug Strategy Household Survey reported that 6.4 per cent of young smokers aged 18-24 used e-cigarettes.

E-cigarettes do have the potential to help adult and non-pregnant women quit smoking, but they are not safe for youth, young adults, pregnant women or adults who do not now use tobacco products, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

E-cigarettes are generally thought to be safer than traditional cigarettes, which kill up to half of all lifetime users, the World Health Organization says.
