Apple BANS apps that promote vapen from the App Store after e-cigarettes have been linked to 40 deaths and more than 2,700 diseases in the US
- Apple has removed 181 vapen apps from the App Store due to health risks
- More than 40 people have died as a result of diseases related to vape
- Apple says that deleted apps have been promoted and have turned on the habit
Apple no longer allows apps that promote sheep to be downloaded from the App Store because public concerns about health effects are increasing.
According to Axios, Apple has removed 181 apps on Friday that they say are encouraging or helping people to evaporate.
Among those apps were various tools that users could use to change the lighting and temperature of sheep pens and also offer sheep-related news, social networking and games.
The number of deaths by vape continues to sweep the US, with the total number of fatalities up to 42 deaths in 24 states. A total of 2,172 have fallen ill since the onset of the disease in March
& # 39; We take great care in putting the App Store together as a trusted place for customers, especially young people, to download apps & # 39 ;, Apple told Axios in a statement.
& # 39; We are constantly evaluating apps and consulting the latest data to determine risks to users' health and well-being. & # 39;
Apple's decision comes after at least 42 deaths from sheep mixes, in addition to more than 2,700 reports of sheep-related disease according to the Center for Disease Control.
Most of those cartridges were so-called boot-leg brews that also contained THC, while some were legitimate nicotine cartridges.
Although the evidence is not definitive, the FDA says that a vitamin E acetate, which is added to evaporating liquids to thicken or dilute them, could be responsible for the outcome of disease and death.
& # 39; Experts ranging from the CDC to the American Heart Association have attributed several e-cigarettes and fatalities to e-cigarettes and vapes, so far that they call the spread of these devices a public health crisis and a youth epidemic, & # 39; Apple told Axios.
& # 39; We agree and have updated our App Store review guidelines to indicate that apps that encourage or facilitate the use of these products are not allowed. Starting today, these apps are no longer available for download. & # 39;
WHAT IS KILLING OF VAPERS?
Harvard University & # 39; new lung disease & # 39; mentioned.
Cases have been reported in most US states – 38, plus one territory.
Vitamin E acetate is suspected as a possible trigger for the disease.
But it is only found in THC vapes, which used some, but not all, critically ill patients.
This chemical can act as fat in the lungs and damage the small bags that fill with air.
In most, if not all, of these cases, what begins with shortness of breath and chest pain, coughing, vomiting, fatigue, diarrhea, fever, and weight loss.
Patients with the most serious cases end up in the hospital with severely damaged lungs that often appear to be infected with pneumonia.
Sometimes they have to be placed on fans or in medically induced comas.
The disease can develop rapidly and develop into the so-called acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
ARDS is a life-threatening condition, which means that the lungs cannot provide the vital organs of the body with sufficient oxygen.
Diseases are most common among men, accounting for 72 percent of confirmed cases.
Vape-related diseases have affected Americans of all ages, but are more common in younger people who are usually not susceptible to lung diseases.
Young adults between the ages of 18 and 34 are responsible for 67 percent of cases and 16 percent of the victims of Vap disease are under the age of 18
