Vaping issues
The Tennessee Department of Health announced Monday that it has received reports of 49 cases of serious lung injury among people who use electronic cigarettes or other vaping devices. This is an immediate public health concern with potentially severe consequences, the department says. At this time, no single product or substance has been linked to all the lung injury cases and the specific chemical or ingredient causing lung injuries associated with e-cigarette use or vaping remains unknown. While this investigation is ongoing, TDH and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend Tennesseans consider refraining from using e-cigarette or vaping products. Regardless of the ongoing investigation, youth should not use e-cigarette or vaping products, and adults who do not currently use tobacco products should not start. The Department of Health also advises that women who are pregnant should not use e-cigarette or vaping products. Adults who used e-cigarettes to quit cigarette smoking are advised not to return to smoking cigarettes. The Department of Health in partnership with CDC and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating these cases as part of a nationwide outbreak of severe pulmonary disease among people who use e-cigarettes or vape, with nearly 1,300 cases reported to date in 49 states. Electronic cigarettes and other vaping devices are not approved by the FDA.
