Vaping has been in the market for about 10 years now and the number of people who are into this practice has only gone up ever since. As reports of death are growing, the deaths are not directly related to vaping at all, suggests one source.
The vaping deaths happening today don’t have any defined cause. In fact, these lung illnesses are found to be related with products purchased from the black market, a Europe based brand, Dash Vapes suggests.
The reports that have come in recently about unidentified and unprecedented levels of sickness, there have been a total of 6 deaths in the USA.
As the death toll rises, CNN has refused to do any form of advertising for the Brand, JUUL. Meanwhile, USA is readying a bill to ban the use of flavoured e-cigarettes altogether.
FDA is currently working on the draft to put any nicotine and tobacco-free flavours of e-cigarettes. The companies will be allowed to reintroduce their products in the market after FDA approval. But all the products that are not tobacco flavoured will be out of the US market within 30 days.
Guidelines for use of Vapes
The CDC in an ongoing investigation currently sees 450 cases of lung disease which may be caused by continuous use of e-cigarettes.
US Congress is pressuring the Trump administration to hone in on the situation and put a ban on e-cigarettes once and for all.
The President of the American Vaping Association suggests that this move of banning vaping products will remove life-changing options from the market.
What is being called an epidemic has taken the news by storm while the real epidemic in the US markets – Opioids – is being overlooked as no real action for that is in place.
The FDA is on the ready and looking for ways to create guidelines for Vaping products. This process is likely to take weeks as lawmakers and public health groups pressurise the head of FDA, Sharpless. Take decisive action, else resign.
