American Medical Association Calls for a Ban on E-Cigarettes Products
As more and more vaping illnesses and deaths occur due to e-cigarette use, the American Medical Association has called for a ban on these products.
Lung injuries associated with E-cigarettes, or vaping, are known as EVALI, and lead to hospitalization of nearly all patients. Health officials have identified vitamin E acetate as a possible contributor. This is an oil used in THC cartridges that many young people vape.
Juul Labs, the company that holds 70% of the E-cigarette and vaping product market, is at the center of many lawsuits and federal investigations. These lawsuits allege that the company targeted young people, including minors. Additionally, they allege that Juul Labs failed to warn consumers that their vaping products contain nicotine.
Juul is also being accused of promoting its vaping products as healthier alternatives to cigarettes. Vape pen use, often called Juuling, has been linked to lung damage and even death among young people.
