INVESTIGATORS probing the deaths of six people who contracted vaping-related lung diseases have warned that NO e-cigarette is safe. US health bosses say they aren’t ruling out any products on the market – despite vaping industry officials trying to blame illegal cannabis products. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is investigating the cause of at least six deaths and 450 reported cases of lung illnesses linked to the devices. Dr Dana Meaney-Delman, who is leading the investigation, said people should stop using any electronic cigarette or vaping device until there is more conclusive evidence of a cause. She said: “We’re trying to prevent any additional cases and deaths.” The agency lead has so far reviewed data from 64 patients, including cases published on Friday in the New England Journal of Medicine, as well as other reports. Dr Meaney-Delman said 80 per cent of those patients reported the use of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of cannabis. Ditch bootleg vapes The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last week warned consumers against using vaping devices bought “on the street”. It also warned against adding THC and other substances to products purchased in stores. Dr Meaney-Delman said investigators are not yet ready to distinguish between products. The data she has reviewed show that 60 per cent of patients used both THC and nicotine, while 20 per cent reported only using nicotine in their devices. She said: “We’re absolutely concerned about THC, but there’s a large number in our data that are reporting (use of) both nicotine and THC. “There is no one product, device or substance that we can point to that is common among all these different patients.” Dr Meaney-Delman said state health officials are now going back to interview all patients about the products they used. The UK versus USA – how vaping compares TWO chemicals found in two popular vaping flavours could destroy lung function, experts have warned. Inhaling the popcorn and caramel e-cig liquids could increase a vaper’s risk of respiratory diseases, their findings suggest. Popcorn flavoured e-cig liquid is especially harmful, thanks to the chemical diacetyl, which has been linked to “popcorn lung”. In the UK, diacetyl was banned in e-cigarette liquid under the EU Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) in 2016. So, e-liquids sold in the UK shouldn’t contain diacetyl but if you get your liquid on holiday, you may well find that it includes it. The CDC is also trying to match what its scientists are finding in tissue and fluid samples taken from patients’ lungs with substances the FDA is identifying in the products used by sick patients. Dr Meaney-Delman said some of the samples are nicotin
