White House Bans Flavored E-Cigs Amidst Vaping Deaths

FDA moves to ban flavored e-cigarettes Here’s what we know

The plan is to ban all non-tobacco flavored vaping products.

The surprise White House announcement could shake up the multibillion-dollar vaping industry, which has been driven by sales of flavoured nicotine formulas. "The Trump Administration is making it clear that we intend to clear the market of flavored e-cigarettes to reverse the deeply concerning epidemic of youth e-cigarette use that is impacting children, families, schools and communities", said HHS Secretary Alex Azar.

President Trump on Thursday said that he and first lady Melania have warned their teen son about the dangers of vaping.

"The tremendous progress we've made in reducing youth tobacco use in the United States is jeopardized by this onslaught of e-cigarette use", Sharpless said.

President Trump announced today that his administration is preparing to ban flavored e-cigarettes to fight a surge in vaping by "innocent children", the Hill reports. In fact all the 450 cases and six deaths are related to use of ingredients like tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana and flavors. People have died", Mr. Trump said Wednesday, adding "But we can't allow people to get sick.

The FDA has had the authority to ban vaping flavours since 2016, but has previously resisted calls to take that step.

With more teens than ever now vaping, it seems like the younger folks who are more at risk.

"Any tobacco product use, including e-cigarettes, is unsafe for youth". Then came a decision earlier this year by a judge who moved the deadline to May 2020, with the possibility for vape companies to stay up to one year on the market while waiting for FDA's approval. Juul, one of the best known manufacturers, has grown into a huge business by selling mint, fruit and dessert flavored-nicotine products.

"While this investigation is ongoing, people should consider not using e-cigarette products", said Dr. Dana Meaney-Delman, incident manager of the CDC's response to the vaping-related lung injuries.

But a Juul spokesman said in a statement that the company "strongly" agreed with the need for "aggressive action" on flavors.

"Finally, the FDA is doing its job", said Sen.

The number of e-cigarette users, many of them teenagers, who have been stricken by a mysterious and acute lung illness has more than doubled around the country in just the last week.

"At that point, all flavored e-cigarettes other than tobacco flavor would have to be removed from the market".

During 2015-2017, almost 2,035 e-cigarettes have exploded or caused burns in the United States alone. But the agency specifies only flavored e-cigarette products containing nicotine will be the focus for enforcement in the near future. The agency notes that scientists still have a lot to learn about whether e-cigarettes are effective for quitting smoking, and that additional research is needed to understand long-term health effects.
