Nicotine & Tobacco Cessation
The national outbreak of vaping associated lung injuries and deaths is still being investigated.
Laboratory data show that vitamin E acetate, an additive in some THC-containing e-cigarette, or vaping, products, is closely associated with the outbreak.
Adults who continue to use an e-cigarette, or vaping, product should carefully monitor themselves for symptoms and see a healthcare provider immediately if they develop symptoms like those reported in this outbreak.
CDC recommends that people DO NOT:
- Use THC-containing e-cigarette, or vaping, products, particularly from informal sources like friends, family, or in-person or online sellers.
- Add Vitamin E acetate to e-cigarette or vape products
