  • Along with its warning letter, the FDA requested documents and data about the company’s “Make the Switch” and “Switching Program” campaigns, which encourage smokers to move from cigarettes to Juul. (Wikimedia Commons/) At a July House of Representatives subcommittee meeting on the youth nicotine epidemic in the United States, members of Congress heard testimony about vaporizer company Juul’s health claims and marketing practices. The evidence presented, along with documentation collected directly from the company, was enough for the Food and Drug Administration to conclude that Juul issued misleading statements about and illegally marketed their electronic cigarettes, according to a warning letter sent to the company this week. “Juul has ignored the law, and very concerningly, has made some of these statements in school to our nation’s youth,” said acting FDA commissioner Ned Sharpless in a press release. Companies can petition the FDA to be able to label their tobacco products as ‘modified risk,’ meaning they pose less of a health risk than traditional cigarettes. However, the agency has never approved an application for that status. In its warning letter to Juul, the FDA says the company marketed its tobacco products as modified risk without agency approval. They cited testimony from the congressional hearing in July: including that Juul representatives said during presentations that Juul was “much safer than cigarettes,” “totally safe,” and “a safer alternative than smoking cigarettes.” “Regardless of where products like e-cigarettes fall on the continuum of tobacco product risk, the law is clear that, before marketing tobacco products for reduced risk, companies must demonstrate with scientific evidence that their specific product does in fact pose less risk or is less harmful,” Sharpless said. It’s unusual for the FDA to send a warning letter to a company based on evidence presented at congressional hearings, says Marc Scheineson, a...
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending that people stop vaping entirely until the source of a mysterious lung disease linked to the product is confirmed. (Pixabay/) E-cigarettes are often billed as being great tools for smoking cessation, but they’ve quickly risen to become the most commonly-used tobacco product among U.S. teens—including many youths who never smoked traditional cigarettes to begin with. That’s a troubling trend given how little we know about their health effects, and now we’re facing the consequences: A mysterious lung disease is suddenly striking teens, and appears linked to vaping. There were three deaths and 450 probable cases tied to the condition as of Friday, leading the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to recommend that people stop vaping entirely until the source is confirmed. Earlier this week, health officials in New York State—who had been investigating 34 cases reported by doctors in the area—identified a potential lead. The incidents in the state involved individuals using a vaping product containing cannabis. When tested, each of those products also had high amounts of Vitamin E acetate, according to an official statement from the New York Department of Health. This form of the vitamin is often used in beauty care products because it has a long shelf-life. While studies have found that Vitamin E acetate is generally safe for external use and oral ingestion, there’s far less evidence to suggest its safe to inhale. Vitamin E isn’t listed as an approved ingredient for medical marijuana vape products in New York, nor are any of its derivatives. But many of the 34 reported incidents in New York State involved counterfeit products, according to officials. Recreational cannabis is not legal in the state, so any cannabis vape oils bought outside of a medical dispensary are totally unregulated. Across...
  • Will e-cigarettes lead to a rise in lung disease? (Pexels/) A serious illness has stricken nearly 100 people, mostly young adults and adolescents, across more than 14 states—and health officials don’t know yet what’s making them sick. But vaping could have something to do with it. The Center for Disease Control announced Saturday that it would join state departments of health in investigating recent reports of lung disease, primarily in youths. “While some cases in each of the states are similar and appear to be linked to e-cigarette product use, more information is needed to determine what is causing the illnesses,” the CDC reports. The ailment has landed some young people in intensive care and on ventilators, and it may be linked to irreversible lung damage. There’s no evidence yet that anything contagious is involved, but the 94 possible cases that have cropped up in 14 states since June have enough in common to cause concern: In a message to healthcare providers, the CDC noted that all patients who have the illness reported vaping in the weeks and months before they got sick. (Some of the patients reported using products derived from marijuana, but the CDC says too many of them weren’t for it to be the connecting factor.) Experts aren’t shocked to hear that e-cigarettes are being linked to illness. “This is the headline we’ve been trying to prevent,” says Joseph Allen, an environmental health scientist at Harvard University’s Chan School of Public Health. Allen is a co-author of a study published earlier this year that found fungi and bacteria lurking in some popular brands of e-cigarette liquid, but he says contaminants are far from the only reason public health experts are worried about vaping. He generally studies the health impacts of chemical flavor inhalation, and he says that...
