Previously, the media reported that the United States had many people died of serious lung diseases because of e-cigarettes. But the truth of official meaning is that it’s not known whether it is caused by electronic cigarettes
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also made it clear at the press conference that there is no evidence currently that these lung diseases are related to any particular product. Among the cases, many patients admitted that smoking e-cigarettes didn’t use nicotine-containing e-liquid but THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a high-concentration chemical extracted from cannabis. And the THC liquids generally purchased on the street rather than nicotine-containing e-liquid sold in regular markets.
Recent surveys indicate that products come from the street or other informal sources are the main reason to cause the illnesses. It doesn’t mean that e-cigarettes cause disease but the low quality smoke oil.
Therefore the cause of the disease should point to THC not e-cigarettes.
So we should make a clear distinction between nicotine and THC and also need to inform the public to stop using THC related products. It should especially pay attention to not buy or try any product from an unclear source like streets or other informal sources .
There is more evidence in this outbreak that street products containing THC or other illegal ingredients are the cause of these illnesses not electronic cigarettes containing nicotine. When we know that the contaminated THC products are still on the streets, it is highly irresponsible for the media and health departments to focus on the use of e-cigarette products.
We call on CDC and FDA not only to investigate these incidents but also to ensure adult smokers know that nicotine products are currently the safest alternative. Gregory Conley, president of the American Electronic Cigarette Association, said that CDC could have prevented more deaths but their behavior covered the e-cigarette industry by lies. "People will go back to smoking including those who have successfully quit, it will lead to more death eventually.
Is the vapour harmful?
British Sky News quoted the British Ministry of Public Health as saying: “The e-cigarette steam contains no tar or carbon monoxide which is the most harmful elements in tobacco smoking. E-cigarettes do contain some chemicals that have been found in tobacco smoke but at much lower levels.” Previous research by the department showed that e-cigarettes are about 95% less harmful than traditional cigarettes.
The National Health Service said: “So far, there is no evidence that vaping cause harm to other people around you. The available evidence indicates that any risk of harm is extremely low, especially when compared with second-hand tobacco smoke.” Both the National Health Service and the UK Department of Health support people use e-cigarettes instead of smoking. They recommended that hospitals should sell e-cigarettes and provide e-cigarette lounges for patients to encourage people last year (from traditional tobacco to e-cigarettes) .
The real reason that cause Vaping Death is THC not e-cigarettes. So if you choose e-liquid from the legal market you will be safe. It should especially pay attention to not buy any product from an unclear source like streets or other informal sources.
