The White House had held a conference wherein President Donald Trump stated that the ban on flavored e-cigarettes is going to soon be rejected. The youth vaping epidemic and vaping-related lung disease are the reason behind the state officials calling for a ban. The banned products included bubble gum, creme brûlée, fruit, menthol, and mint. On November 4, 2019, Trump stated that he is planning on backing off from the ban. The ban is feared to take away jobs, hamper businesses, and also impact his vote rate among the supporters. Trump was targeted by protestors, social media movements, and other programs regarding the ban.
A few authorities think that the ban is only going to aggravate the smoking rates and also have a huge impact on businesses. The president has planned to support the vape shops and start the sale of flavored products to boost the revenue and business in the country. Smoking is found to be one of the leading causes of death in the US and vaping is commonly being used. The flavored e-cigarettes can help cigarette smokers quit is actually false. The ban is believed to encourage teenagers to smoke cigarettes and this is a puzzling situation for the government. The FDA can prohibit the ban on flavors in e-cigarettes and instead prohibit menthol in regular cigarettes or limit the quantity of nicotine in cigarettes.
Similarly, a recently released report has shown vaping to have taken 42 more lives. Vaping-related lung injury is found to be killing many users this year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of deaths related to vaping has been found to reach 2,172. The studies have shown vitamin E acetate present in the cartridges to be the sole reason injuring the lungs of the users. The other products like propylene glycol, glycerine, and nicotine are found to combine to form a layer on the lungs. The presence of nicotine in e-cigarettes is found to get the users addicted to it. Apple has already planned to remove all the vaping and e-cigarette-related apps from its stores as a positive initiative.
