"Unfortunately, this could be part of an iceberg on the risk of a pandemic to the health of Americans. Especially for teenagers." Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told The Hill on October 3.

According to the CDC, 275 cases of lung conditions could have been caused by the use of electronic cigarettes in the previous week.

In the study that evaluated 578 cases of patients, CDC said that 78% of people admitted to using tetrahydrocannabinol (THC - a chemical compound extracted from hemp). According to the study, 70% of patients are male and 80% are under 35 years old.

CDC urges users to stop using electronic cigarettes containing THC until clarifying the relationship between this product and recent cases of lung disease.

Also on October 3, the US Federal Trade Commission asked many electronic cigarette manufacturing companies to submit documents about advertising and buying and selling this item. This is a signal that the US is about to open an investigation into this market.

The announcement came after US health officials discovered many deaths related to the use of flavored e-cigarettes in the past. Currently, US health officials have warned people not to buy electronic tobacco products sold on the street or products using essential oils derived from marijuana. Also, avoid inhaling vitamin E acetate. It is an ingredient found in some electronic cigarette products.

To date, many states in the US, such as Washington, New York, Michigan, and Massachusetts, have banned electronic cigarettes and essential oil products for these cigarettes.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg has announced that he will dedicate $ 160 million to a campaign to ban e-cigarettes using fragrant essential oils in the United States.
