Vaping. As More Evidence Implicates Vitamin E Acetate in Lung Injuries, the Press Continues to Blame E-Cigarettes That Don’t Contain It The black-market additive showed up in lung.

The leading culprit at this point is an oily chemical called vitamin E acetate, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There have been three confirmed deaths linked to vaping, as well as one death that’s potentially connected, Ileana Arias, acting deputy director of non-infectious diseases at the CDC, said during a media briefing on Friday. Vitamin E acetate is strongly linked to the EVALI outbreak.

Vitamin E acetate has been found in product samples tested by FDA and state laboratory and in patient lung fluid samples tested by CDC. Vitamin E acetate is strongly linked to the EVALI outbreak. Vitamin E acetate has been found in product samples tested by FDA and state laboratories and in patient lung fluid samples tested by CDC from geographically diverse states.

Vitamin E acetate has not been found in the lung fluid of people that do not have EVALI.

  • Bravo. You have a current and relatively balanced presentation. Now you need to get rid of the other highly misleading vaping videos that you have posted. I am not going to give you a thumbs up while that nonsense is still out there even if the nonsense was not of your creation.

  • Interesting correlation between the dangers of HOW a product is being taken. I for some reason thought that however a product taken and it goes as an intake the effect would be the same. I truly learn so much and become more educated from your videos! Love you Doc keep the information flowing!

  • “It might be” then they show pictures of Aspire tank and Kangertech tank while teens hitting Juul pods talking about THC pens. So not even the footage your showing is related to what you’re talking about and you don’t even know what you’re talking about. Journalism in 2019

  • as propagandist as this is…at least that doctor actually put the focus on the thc oils… but yeah, they just cant help but generalize with “vape” and “e cigs”.
    the worst are the ones that pretend to give a shit about “the children” because of the “concern” over the rise in teen vaping…ignoring the fact kids are vaping because they arent picking up cigs.

    but inept liberal politicians tax the shit out of cigs….so yeah, stop vaping right away kids.

  • Dr Mike Hansen you are Great and was so happy to see the Video of smoking Vapes and all effects. Thanks! Keep Up.

  • Real Vape only contains Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Flavor and Nicotine IN THAT ORDER. Whatever these TEENS were getting was made in China or by a BackYard Chemist that didn’t use proper ingredients. This all started when the Chinese had a huge problem with Fentanyl use. This seems a little suspicious that we were completely off of ciggarettes when the bans occured…. Made it through that with overstock supplies and my own mixtures. Then Covid -19 hit and closed many stores down again. But guess what…. Back on Vape and not having any problems… SO what was the problem with that 17% of people that only used vape devices you ask? BLACK MARKET CHINESE PRODUCTS. I can’t stand that people are so easily tricked by Cigarette manufacturers and their tactics to shut down an industry that was doing legitimate business by flashing the teen market with “Bad” vape. Buy from companies in the US that are well knowns and you won’t have a problem with the Vape juice.

  • Meanwhile there are more vapers, then smokers in the UK. Because their healthcare works and support smokers to switch to vaping. The UK has known that the tobacco companies lied about the toxics in cigaretts, 10 years before the USA took action. Instead of banning it immediatly, as a good example for the rest of the world, they got partners with the tobacco mafia ��

  • This feels very sensationalized…. grasping for stories much. The intro is one lady making a false statement and the second lady trying to back track her statement but still sound like they have BREAKING NEWS but its just ordinary mundane BULLSHIT

  • There is lots of fud being put out due to monetary motives.  CDC employees were mass buying tobacco stocks before rolling out this anti-vaping campain and the director of the CDC was even forced out over it.
    cigarette: a thin cylinder of finely cut tobacco rolled in paper for smoking.
    There is no tobacco in nicotine vape products and there is certainly no tobacco or nicotine in marijuana or in THC vapes.  People who vape nicotine tend to use the term vaping to refer to cigar and cigarillo like devices, rather than e-cigarette like devices.  Calling everything a cigarette confuses things and this is intensional.  Vaping is a broad term for electric coil based aerosols.  Smoking is a broad term for an aerosol from combustion, but it important to understand that there is a difference between smoking meat, a cigarette and smoking crack or meth.  Meat smokers will not somehow stop people from overdosing on meth, just because both use the word smoke.
    Suspected pathology of Tocopheryl-acetate(vitamin E acetate) as the primary.
    lipoid pneumonia
    Samples of lung fluid from patients with the ‘mysterious illness’ all contained Tocopheryl-acetate(vitamin E acetate). So 100% used THC or CBD vape products containing vitamin E acetate. Nicotine vape liquid does not contain oils and as such can’t cause lipoid pneumonia.
    Tocopheryl-acetate destabilizes the fragile, lipo-hydrophilic balance of this lung surfactant, causing occlusion, affecting the permeation of gases and substances in the bronchial structures and alveoli. Tocopheryl-acetate’s chemical acetate ring enables it to cling even more strongly to lung surfactant than the non-acetate form. It’s like Saran-wrapping the inside of your lungs and lung cells die. That damage can initiate a runaway immune system reaction resembling hypersensitivity pneumonitis, or immune checkpoint-inhibitor pneumonitis. This may especially occur with high doses of tocopheryl-acetate, such as in formulations found in an illegal THC vape carts(cartridges). It may occur even at relatively low vaping temperatures.
    Why is vitamin E acetate used?
    Honey Cut(Tocopheryl-acetate) is used by drug dealers to cut THC distillate to dilute it without thinning it. Buyers will notice if it is thin and not buy it. With Honey Cut the buyer doesn’t know the THC distillate is cut and the dealer can make more money, as they can make more vials with the same amount of distillate.
    Warning: CBD(cannabidiol) is often sold in bulk pre-mixed with Tocopheryl-acetate, and could even be be sold in legal dispensaries with Tocopheryl-acetate for vaping.
    Most likely secondary, is an issue going back years.
    Samples of illegal THC vape tested extremely high(50x legal limit for ingestion) for Eagle 20(myclobutanil), a fungicide. When burned or vaped, it releases hydrogen cyanide and hydrogen chloride.
    Hydrogen cyanide is what Zyklon B released in NAZI gas chambers. Lactic acid produced will be elevated due to increased anaerobic respiration from the cyanide blocking the Krebs cycle in cell mitochondria. Symptoms like headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, cough, vomiting and diarrhea are found in cyanide poisonings, and in this illness. If there is any roll of nicotine vaping, one would find interplay here as nicotine blocks apoptosis in mitochondria. If there is a higher prevalence of Juul use(5-19x usual nicotine content for vaping), it could be worth a look, to see if high levels of nicotine can slow recovery from cyanide poisoning.
    Phosgene a WWI chemical weapon releases hydrogen chloride. hydrogen chloride reacts with water in the lungs to form hydrochloric acid, dissolving lung tissue. This could mirror acute chemical pneumonitis and compound lung injury.
    Although Tocopheryl-acetate is the primary cause as it has been found in 100% of cases, but Eagle 20(myclobutanil) is probably also a factor and perhaps required for this acute of a reaction.

    You are conflating water soluble nicotine products and oil based THC products. Flavors have no connection, yet you bring them up. You thin bring up flawed studies up while ignoring thousands of studies showing the safety of nicotine vaping. Nicotine vaping is 95% to 99% safer than smoking, and you position on nicotine vaping is a danger to the lives of tens of millions of people. The medical community is currently the number one cause of death in the USA, and should become evidence based, putting aside their dangerous bias. I would point to suppressing the deaths from class ic antiarrhythmic drugs that lead to the deaths of over one hundred thousand Americans as an example.
    Studies with negative findings for pharmaceutical drugs are rarely published, but possessive ones are almost always published. Thousands of possessive vaping studies are not published, while extraordinarily flawed and junk studies with negative findings are.
    The motive is clearly pharmaceutical profits, not patent health. The bias is real.

  • Vaping has been around for over a decade now, and NO ONE vaping on regular nicotine devices has gotten sick or died EVER, the people getting sick and dying was actually using Illicit Black Market Products (this was admitted by the CDC and when Dr. Schuchat was asked if the people who said they were not using THC may have lied about it she said YES, since at that moment they were just taking statements to the patients). The vaping community has been saying since the beginning of this outbreak was this was occurring due ILLEGAL BLACK MARKET PRODUCTS, not nicotine products bought on vape shops, but then again this was a very good card to play against vaping in general, first they said that heavy metals were being released into the vapes, that was debunked, then they said that you could get popcorn lung disease for diacetyl, also debunked, then they said that second hand vape was harmful, debunked as well, then water in the lungs, debunked, then the battery issues (debunked since batteries don’t explode if used properly), etc, etc, etc, then this illnesses and people dying started happening and the media hit vaping really hard, since they were just blaming vaping in general, and now that the smoke clears (lets say the vape clears instead) they are attacking vaping by saying that there is a youth vaping crisis, when actually there isn’t, I don’t say kids should vape, but I’m saying that the data shown is manipulated, since this studies includes people who are over 18years old, people who tried vaping just once and that’s it, and people who was actually smoking regular cigarettes prior starting to vape, but yet again in this studies they are all included, you can check it out on the following link: https://rodutobaccotruth.blogspot.com/2019/05/the-2018-american-teen-vaping-epidemic.html

  • View the other MedCram videos on vaping associated lung injury at our website: https://www.medcram.com/courses/vaping-associated-lung-injury

  • The real issue is, and always was black market THC. They only grudgingly mentioned that by the end. It messes with their narrative.

  • well this news clip at least says it wasnt you normal everyday e-cig that is making people die. i guess the tobacco industry hasnt gotten to them yet.

  • Hello Doctor Hansen a patient of mine who also has been vaping THC has deep wheezing that can go away if he stops vaping and runs more. Although even months after not vaping or smoking anything he experiences a wet cough after eating. I have a feeling the two may be connected, as a way of the lungs slowly pushing out the toxins as time goes by. What are your thoughts on this hypothesis on this situation? Do you think the two are related? One more question, are there any therapeutic ways such as steam therapy that can help victims cleanse their lungs?

  • This might be corona lol. Symptoms on the lung looks exactly the same, stop blaming on vape, people are vaping for many years, and it fine, if there’s illness on vape, most likely they will be cancer and not result in white fabric lungs like corona virus did in a short amount of time, it starts last year April 2019, it dies fast and contiguous, those went through test kits numbered up to more than 2k in just couple months, mostly around July to October, sound familiar and suspicious?

  • I did the mistake of smoking for some years, now I am vaping. I saw drastic difference in endurance, breathing quality, smell, taste etc.
    Now I am at the point where I vape when I remember to or socially or just to relax after hard work. I do not feel an urge to vape and I could quit if I wanted but I find it fun.
    Also I do not smell like an ass tray, even after having 10 showers and brushing everything there is to brush.
    Of course this is all anecdotal evidence, after all I was NOT a heavy smoker, but it really really helps you quit smoking.

    In the end of the day vaping might not be good, lungs did not evolve for vaping, but smoking is definitely very very bad.

  • It hurts to watch… no shit they buying some boof ass carts off the black market they arent real thc products… some trap star fills up an empty cart and sells it to these bafoons and then they die. Not any of this uninformed media horse shit xD

  • Love your videos, and yes… they are definitely explained clearly! I’m not sure the topic matters, as each video I’ve watched has been incredibly interesting, engaging, and easily understood. Excellent job! Thank you for all the effort!

  • How many of them are COVID-19? When and where did it started? The director of CDC already confirmed the existence of COVID-19 among the ‘Flu’ cases last year in USA.

  • Every year nearly 500,000 people die from tobacco use related illnesses in the USA alone. That’s one death every minute of every day.
    At the same time, alcohol use is responsible for another 100,000 deaths yearly(88k from illness, 12k from drunk drivers). Both tobacco products and alcohol products are still legal to use in all 50 states.
    As of today, the CDC has confirmed only 47 EVALI associated deaths period, and yet 8 states have outlawed the use of vape pens in response to the EVALI “epidemic” that has, as of today, affected 2,290 people nation wide. (You can verify the numbers on CDC’s website btw). This media driven mass hysteria about vaping and the various state and local government responses to it, is insane! Why haven’t they responded in a similar fashion to the alcohol or tobacco product deaths?! There are other problems that plague our nation such as the suicide rate of our Military Veterans which currently is being reported at 20 per day, that should have triggered a state and local government response similar to what we are seeing with vaping, but have not! The fact that there hasn’t been one, in my opinion, is what we all should be concerned about right now

  • Samples of lung fluid from patients with the ‘mysterious illness’ all contained Tocopheryl-acetate(vitamin E acetate). So 100% used THC or CBD vape products containing vitamin E acetate. Nicotine vape liquid does not contain oils and as such can’t cause lipoid pneumonia.
    Method for the primary cause
    Tocopheryl-acetate destabilizes the fragile, lipo-hydrophilic balance of this lung surfactant, causing occlusion, affecting the permeation of gases and substances in the bronchial structures and alveoli. Tocopheryl-acetate’s chemical acetate ring enables it to cling even more strongly to lung surfactant than the non-acetate form. It’s like Saran-wrapping the inside of your lungs and lung cells die. That damage can initiate a runaway immune system reaction resembling hypersensitivity pneumonitis, or immune checkpoint-inhibitor pneumonitis. This may especially occur with high doses of tocopheryl-acetate, such as in formulations found in an illegal THC vape cart cut heavily with the oil(caster or mineral oil). It may occur even at relatively low vaping temperatures.

    Possible secondary
    Also most samples of THC vape tested extremely high(50x legal limit for ingestion) for Eagle 20(myclobutanil), a fungicide. When burned or vaped, it releases hydrogen cyanide and hydrogen chloride.
    Hydrogen cyanide is what Zyklon B released in NAZI gas chambers. It blocks aerobic respiration in cell mitochondria. Cyanide blocking the Krebs cycle causes acidosis, and is easy to test for. Symptoms like headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, cough, vomiting and diarrhea are found in cyanide poisonings, and in this illness.
    Phosgene a WWI chemical weapon releases hydrogen chloride. hydrogen chloride reacts with water in the lungs to form hydrochloric acid, dissolving lung tissue. This could be seen as an acute chemical pneumonitis.
    Although Tocopheryl-acetate is the primary cause, Eagle 20(myclobutanil) is probably also a factor. The secondary has been a concern for many years, as there is a huge problem with Eagle 20 contamination in the cannabis industry and illegal sellers would be a vector for getting rid of tainted product, rather than destruction.

    CBD also needs to be tested for Tocopheryl-acetate and it could be in legally sold products. CBD is an oil, and a thin oil at that.
    PS:I would point out that FDA recommended cessation methods are not effective or proven safe. FDA is not evidence based, rather monetarily motivated.

  • Well done with sticking to the facts! The video was clear and unbiased. But here is my 2 cents, cause I can, Vaping nicotine flavored products should be done responsibly and anyone making the switch from cigarettes to e-cigs should properly educate themselves. There is so much misinformation out there, Even from media sources we thought reputable but unfortunately scary stories sell, the truth is boring. Vaping THC or Nicotine is Not Bad, it’s better than… so Make sure you go to a trusted vape shop or cannabis shop to get the facts and the truth from a trusted source. Stop buying THC off the streets, it’s legal now! Well almost! And let’s try not to create a Black market by banning flavors! Last but not least,
    Mind Your children, Teens Dont belong vaping, its NOT cool it’s a tool to help people quit cigarettes or make a healthier choice when choosing to use nicotine or THC. #Wevapewevote

  • Facts:
    nicotine vaping is NOT the cause of this “mysterious lung injury” which is only observed in the US despite million of people vaping flavored nicotine eliquids worldwide
    the Royal College of Physicians, compromised of 36 000 international medical experts, after having studied over a decades worth of research, have deemed nicotine vaping as 95% less harmful than combustible cigarettes -> https://www.rcpe.ac.uk/sites/default/files/jrcpe_48_4_mathur.pdf
    the vitamin E acetate CANNOT be in nicotine eliquids as it is an oil and the eliquids all use water soluble ingredients -> meaning they cannot mix
    vitamin E acetate has been found in the majority of blackmarket THC cartridges -> dealers use it as a thickener
    nicotine vaping doubles the chances of a person quitting combustible cigarettes compared to regular nicotine replacement therapies which are “FDA approved” -> https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1808779

  • I appreciate the information about vaping without a pound of fear-mongering. I’m curious to see what you do with the channel so I’m subscribing. If I can make one suggestion, the music in the intro doesn’t fit the content. The background music throughout the video is good. Energizing and upbeat without being distracting. The intro feels like you’re following a formula for what a youtuber is supposed to do (similarly the thumbnail for the video) but the rest of the video feels genuine. Be yourself and continue providing solid content and the subscribers will follow.

  • I’ve been a respiratory therapist for over 20 years. I’ve seen it all. Many end stage COPD patients who struggle just to breathe. never mind walking 10 feet. Not one of my patients say smoking was worth it!!  I used to smoke a long time ago when I was a teenager. NEVER was I hospitalized for smoking. Although the long term effects of vaping won’t be known for a long time, having so many young people hospitalized and 30% on a ventilator, is not a good start. The big problem with vaping is that you really can’t truly know what you’re inhaling. There are just  too many variables between manufactures and suppliers..  There is no healthy alternative to smoking other than quitting.  Here’s the plain and simple truth. You should not inhale anything other than pure clean air.. Period.

  • CBS has done lots of seriously irresponsible reporting on vaping, since day one. Hey CBS: Before you run your next vaping horror story, why not try educating yourself on what vaping is? Vaping is a method of intake, not evil voodoo. Every time you state or even insinuate ’caused by vaping’, without including WHAT was being vaped, you’re being inaccurate at best, intentionally misleading at worst. If someone downs a vial of unknown poison and dies, do you report that the cause of death was “linked to drinking”? Of course not, because that would be an utterly useless link, just like every time you’ve linked a death or injury to vaping in your many headlines. To protect the public, we need strict regulation of all e-liquids including those containing THC.

  • We all knew this months ago! Stop making excuses dammit! All cases had viteman E not legal flavored nicotine juice. Stop blaming in on that stop punishing law abiding adults. Were fed up we vape we vote and we will not let a flavor ban stop us! The Gov can make all the $ they want from big tobacco but they will not win! All youl do is make it more risky and unsafe because well have to make it or buy it on the street cuz were damn sure not going back to cigs! were all gunna make it if there is a flavor ban and were gunna help our fellow vapers and sell it to them. Try n stop us!

  • Maybe when it’s combined with other ingredients an when flash burned it becomes toxic! Pure distillate an natural terps an the best equipment with no heavy metals is best! Most vape company use bullshit carts from China

  • There is more that can go wrong when u make thc versus nicotine that almost every vaper Vape. Nicotine is not dangerous and VG and PG is safe! Flavours are safe so do not smoke other oil! Please. Experts should speak up because The american experts are not.

  • There are some e-liquid flavours that can damage the lungs but they are mostly based on butter flavouring but most flavour manufacturers no longer use the item in the butter flavour. You can also damage your lungs if you allow your vape to burn and all it takes to stop that is to keep enough juice in your tank.

  • When you say vaping it puts everything vaped in 1 category causing mass confusion, we need separate terms because vaping water soluble nicotine products have sent zero people to the hospital in over a decade, It’s tainted THC pods (illegal black market) killing and harming people in the news.

  • I quit smoking cigs with a vape but then started to feel like I couldn’t breath so I stopped a while ago and now this is all coming out. 15 foot clouds being blown out of your lungs was bound to be horrible and every where said that it was so safe with no data to prove anything was safe. Crazy

  • Actually the isolation of alpha tocopherol was probably the biggest mistake in nutritional history. The following video describes this mistake in detail as well as why it failed as an antioxidant. https://youtu.be/V9zHfSIPdSo

  • Hi I would really appreciate if you answered my question please I’m very worried. I have been smoking a lot of carts which to be honest I don’t think they’re real. I’m so scared rn that I know I will never smoke one again. Recently for a couple of days my back has been hurting, my upper back where my lungs are. I breathe in deeply and they hurt on the bottom. It’s weird I don’t know what I could be but it as been going on for a couple of days. Primarily my right lung. What could this be and could it be a sign?? Should I go to the hospital?

  • so stupid, vaping weed has no harm lmao. you kids are just buying THC carts that are dirty, anything liquid that you can vape, especially ecig liquid has always been known as harmful crap. but trying to tell us “heating up weed” is less safe than smoking it, is just stupid propaganda for parents and dumb kids.

  • Dr Jen if you think the illness is from normal nicotine vapes you are verry dumb.
    Misleading people with her anti vape story. Shame on you dr Jen.
    Here the facts people and the truth.

  • Another thing, I am leary of all these CBD products as well that I see at the mall. I don’t like using anything that is not well researched and recommend by doctors. Dr. J, can you do a video about CBD.

  • IF its not the vitamin E it’s probably all the brain dead 18 year olds putting 50mg salt nic in their sub ohm tanks ( i work in a vape shop and see this every day. I refuse those sales )

  • Um, nicotine is also harmful…bottomline, why do people need to vape? Are they so retarded that they need to have an oral pacifier on a habitual aka addictive basis? These X ray comparisons are reminiscent of all respiratory problem results…such as the “new” Covid-19 aka Severe Acute Respiratory Symdrome 2.0 with even more contagion susceptibility….can you pls draw a correlation between ingesting and inhaling toxins like smoking substances in lung impair and damage and then way more inflammation and ultimately fatality! Don’t get me started on second hand smoke damage to other non smoking humans and of course polluting the environment!!

  • I’ve been smoking cigs and bud since 1980 and have lung problems!! Started vaping (THC) a year ago or so and went to the hospital for breathing problems way worse than normal!!

  • If we let children ruin vaping for adults, why not ban cigarettes and flavored alcohols while we are at it? oh, right it’s not part of their agenda. It’s ok if kids die from drinking cherry watermelon vokda. The ONLY reason vaping has been targeted is because it is BY AND LARGE safer than cigarettes and the government wants you to die before you get old. Plan? force a ban on vaping and get ex-smokers to pick up again plus the whole new generation coming up. No safe alternative, government banned that.. sorry!

  • Did anyone read the directions?.. ( not all the same.. but.. ) you’re not supposed to inhale. Vapors are to be held in mouth / throat and expelled through sinuses… nasal passages. Inhaling into lungs allows quicker absorption of nicotine or other ” active ingredients ” but.. “BLOW IT OUT YOUR NOSE “…. Charge people with murder?.. How about charge people with illiteracy & stupidity. Bet you lazy “DR.s” haven’t read the directions… for the majority of the drugs you’ve prescribed. Maybe next time a patient has an adverse reaction… you should got to jail?? Careful what you wish for and prescribe!!!
