Bloomberg pledges $160M to stop youth vaping

3-cases-of-lung-illnesses-being-investigated-for-possible-link-to-vaping-delaware-health-officials-say

"While the investigation is ongoing, CDC has advised that individuals consider not using e-cigarettes because as of now, this is the primary means of preventing this type of severe lung disease", Dr. Meaney-Delman said.

While vaping has been deemed safer than smoking tobacco, and therefore encouraged as an effective way to stop smoking, it's becoming clear that vaping does not come without its own risks.

Symptoms include coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, feve, and weight loss.

US health officials have noted that six Americans have died so far due to lung-related illnesses caused by vaping or e-cigarettes.

But on Monday, the American Medical Association was the latest health authority to sound the alarm on vaping, urging people to avoid using the products until more information is known.

But those cases don't account for all of the illnesses that have been reported, meaning either that there are multiple sources of the illnesses or that officials haven't identified the actual culprit yet.

To date, Kansas has six cases associated with the outbreak.

Lisa Bloom Worked to Discredit Rose McGowan for Weinstein: Book
Much of the discussion shifted to Paltrow, who had her own confrontation with Weinstein that involved then-boyfriend Brad Pitt. Her firm privately helped negotiate a settlement that silenced one of his accusers in 2004 - and took a 40 percent cut.

State officials in the United States are now aware of 478 suspected or confirmed cases of vaping-related illnesses, a jump from 450 last week, according to NBC. "If you or a loved one is vaping, please stop". The woman died of acute respiratory distress syndrome less than a week after she began using e-cigarettes.

Meanwhile, Michael Bloomberg slammed the FDA for contributing to the epidemic of teen vaping in the U.S. The billionaire philanthropist announced Tuesday that his non-profit, Bloomberg Philanthropies, is pledging $160 million to fund a new program aimed at ending vaping among teens.

As officials continue their investigation, Kelleher wants them to know he's not trying to hurt anyone.

In New York state, officials found one common ingredient in the vaping products used by those who use the devices with THC oil and have gotten sick, but that likely does not translate to those who have become ill after using the more mainstream products.

Vaping industry representatives argue that their product is far less harmful than cigarettes and that they do not market to youthful users.

Although officers go on to examine, the Facilities for Disorder Regulate and Prevention is warning the aerosol utilised in the e-cigarettes has damaging substances these kinds of as nicotine, guide products and solutions and cancer-producing brokers.
