Is the first confirmed fatal outcome of “safe” e-cigarettes

Although for some time, it has been louder and louder to say that e-smoking is just as harmful as classic, many people still do not want to believe in scientific research.

Some time ago, we wrote to you about the latest research, which examined the taste additives for e-liquids. It was clear from them that electronic cigarettes are not only addictive as much as classic ones, but can also seriously damage blood vessel cells and potentially increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Interestingly, by the way, we learned that various flavor additives have a different degree of harm, and the worst of the examined turned out to be cinnamon, which caused significant damage and dysfunction of blood vessels.

Now, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) reported the first death of an adult patient associated with severe respiratory disease. Death is associated with the use of e-cigarettes, as are 200 other cases of lung disease already reported in the United States. What’s worse, American hospitals are talking loudly about the growing number of very young people smoking e-cigarettes, who end up in hospitals with respiratory problems, in which the only common factor is the use of e-liquids.

No specific product has yet been associated with all these issues, so most likely they all have similar harm, although preliminary CDC reports show that tetrahydrocannabinol products can cause the most damage. This was found in products that were used by 193 patients related to the case: – In many cases, patients reported symptoms gradually appearing, such as breathing difficulties, shortness of breath or chest pains. Some also reported moderate gastrointestinal problems, including vomiting, diarrhea and syncope.

Regarding the first fatality, whose death was directly linked to e-cigarettes, unfortunately no information about her age or gender was disclosed 1337 directory. However, we learned that at present there are at least 22 people in the hospitals aged 17-38 with respiratory problems whose diseases are the result of using e-cigarettes. According to Robert Redfield, director of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is a US federal government agency that is part of the Department of Health and Welfare: – We work with various agencies to investigate these matters well, because it looks like a real epidemic is coming related to e-cigarettes.
