Latest updates on vaping and on illegal THC illnesses in U.S.

This week has been fairly quiet on news, but it's mainly unchanged from last week.  The confirmed culprit is still vitamin E acetate (which we pretty much knew since back in September), and nothing bad found in any nicotine-based eliquid samples.  As you may or may not yet know, the U.S. epidemic has spawned a new set of problems for us here in Canada.  Anti-vaping lobbyists have used this situation to go to war against the vaping industry.  8 large health organizations (Action on Smoking and Health, Canadian Cancer Society, Canadian Medical Association, Canadian Lung Association, Coalition québécoise pour le...

Update on illegal THC-related illnesses

Hi folks, this one will be quick because there's only one very important update to report on.  The CDC has finally released their data on the bronchoalveolar lavage samples.  These are basically saline water samples that have been used to rinse the lungs of the impacted patients to gather biological samples.

Weekly Update on THC-related Lung Injuries

While the percentage of affected patients that were using THC continues to climb week after week and the rate of new cases continues to drop, it's becoming more and more apparent to investigators that THC-vaping, NOT nicotine-vaping, is the culprit behind the lung injuries in the United States.     Dr. Dana Meaney Delman, head of the CDC's investigative team working on the epidemic, reports "We've narrowed this clearly to THC-containing products that are associated with most patients who are experiencing lung injury"  https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/10/25/773138356/behind-the-scenes-of-cdcs-vaping-investigation   Utah Department of Health claims "nearly everyone who has become sick in Utah has reported vaping...
