Donald Trump said Wednesday that his administration will take steps to provide flavored & # 39; vapen & # 39; banning products after hundreds of Americans have fallen victim to a mysterious e-cigarette illness.
Alex Azar, secretary of the Health and Human Services secretary, spoke with reporters that the Food and Drug Administration will propose new regulations to keep the products off the market in a few weeks.
Medical experts believe that e-cigarettes in flavors such as mango, mint and fruit appeal to children too much.
& # 39; It is not only a problem in general, but really specific with regard to children, & # 39; said Trump, adding that & # 39; we might have to do something very, very strong. & # 39;
President Donald Trump says his government is considering a ban on flavored sheep: “It is not only a problem in general, but really specific with regard to children”.
It is shown that a liquid nicotine solution is poured into a vapor device in a store in New York; while health officials investigate the cause of hundreds of e-cigarette lung diseases, the Trump government plans to ban flavored solutions that appeal to teenagers
The White House and the FDA are increasingly worried about vape among teenagers who are attracted to sweet flavors
Trump said the first lady was engaged to the dangers of vapen. Nicotine, the most important active chemical in both cigarettes and vape oils, is the most addictive in younger people.
& # 39; We cannot allow people to fall ill and we can let our youth be affected in this way, & # 39; said the president to journalists in the Oval Office, & # 39; and I hear it, and that's how the first lady got involved. & # 39;
& # 39; She has a son, (we have) together, that is a beautiful young man, and she feels very, very strong, & # 39; he said. & # 39; She has seen it, we both read it, many people read it. But people die with sheep. & # 39;
The White House believes that JUUL and other companies are likely to push back against regulatory action, but not publicly, according to an official.
And Trump said the e-cigarette companies can afford to struggle with new roadblocks to the youth market.
President Trum has credited first lady Melania (left) for addressing the issue and said she is concerned about the health of their son Barron and other teenagers like him
& # 39; They quickly became very rich companies, & # 39; he said, & # 39; and the whole hassle with vapors is very profitable. & # 39;
& # 39; Many people love sheep, it's great, & # 39; said Trump.
& # 39; it's really not great. & # 39;
The West Wing has an unusual challenge to consider as it is stuck: at least three former admission officials are now working for JUUL. They include former Trump adviser Johnny DeStefano and former former Jared Kushner spokesman Josh Raffel.
US public health officials investigate 450 cases of pulmonary disease related diseases. People in 33 states have already been affected and six have died.
The FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have not yet decided which specific vapor products can cause this.
But the CDC announced last week that in many cases the only common link seemed to be the use of products containing THC, the main psychoactive substance in marijuana.
Alex Azar, Secretary of Health and Human Services, spoke with journalists and said the Food and Drug Administration will propose new regulations in a few weeks to keep flavored e-cigarette cartridges from the market
Patients come to hospitals with cough, chest pain, shortness of breath, tiredness and vomiting.
The health authorities of the state of New York have focused their research on vitamin E acetate, which is used as a thickener in black market evaporation cartridges. Vitamin E is safe as a vitamin or skin supplement, but breathing in the oily drops in the lungs can cause pneumonia.
Most e-cigarettes contain colorless, tasteless chemicals such as propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, which form an inhalable vapor when heated. The chemicals are considered safe as food additives, but their long-term inhalation effects have not been investigated.
Researchers have found carcinogenic chemicals in e-cigarette vapor, such as formaldehyde. However, it is not yet clear whether those chemicals are present in sufficient quantities to cause damage.
E-cigarette vapor contains small particles that contain flavorings. Some early laboratory and animal studies suggest that these taste particles can damage the lungs, airways and blood vessels, but more research is needed to better understand how human bodies respond to them.
Much less is known about the content of THC oils and how these chemicals behave when heated.
