The number of deaths related to glass pipe in the United States rose from 47 to 2,290
November 26 According to a report in the US "World Daily," the latest data released by the US Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that the number of deaths related to glass pipes hand blown in the United States has increased to 47 and the number of confirmed lung diseases related to electronic cigarettes has increased to 2,290.
CDC officials announced a breakthrough in early November and found that among the electronic cigarettes used by patients, there was a viscous gel-like "vitamin E acetate" and the compounds of vitamin E acetate and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) "are too serious crimes".
According to the report, of the 47 deaths in 25 states, Illinois has the highest death toll, with 5. Four in California and Indiana and three in Georgia, Massachusetts and Minnesota. Kansas, Missouri, New York, Oregon and Tennessee each have 2 people.
In addition, Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington, D.C. each have one confirmed case.
CDC pointed out that about 83% of the patients reported smoking THC vapor, which is the main component of marijuana affecting human body and mind. In contrast, only 13 people reported using products containing nicotine. CDC officials said most patients smoked THC and nicotine.
According to the report, glass pipes for smoking with different tastes are the main reasons that attract young people to buy, become addicted and get sick. At least five states, including Massachusetts, Montana, new york, Rhode Island and Washington, have banned the sale of electronic cigarettes with different tastes, but most of them face legal challenges.
Scientists at a research laboratory in new york were the first to suspect vitamin E acetate as the culprit for diseases related to e-cigarettes, based on patients' samples.
Although vitamin E is a health food or can improve skin condition, inhaling vitamin E oil drops may hurt your body. Pork, director of CDC's Laboratory Science Department, said that viscous vitamin E oil droplets would get stuck in the lungs. Scientists speculate that the oil may coat the lungs, causing inflammation or damage, just like mustard gas attacked soldiers' lungs during World War I.
According to the report, vitamin E derived oil is only found in some patients who use black market products. Those who buy legal medical marijuana have not found such harmful substances. However, officials do not think the oil is the only cause of the disease.
At present, CDC has not changed its warning against illegal products, and continues to call on non-smokers not to smoke electronic cigarettes. CDC also advises traditional smokers who buy glass pipes not to smoke flammable cigarettes again, and advises businesses not to sell electronic cigarettes to young people or pregnant women.
