Health officials are now singling out Vitamin E oil as a component in vape products leading to serious hospitalizations. The New York Department of Health says they're now focusing their investigation on Vitamin E acetate as an accelerant in lung illnesses.
So far, two deaths have been attributed to vaping and both involved THC devices. What’s the connection? Vitamin E acetate was found in more than half of the cannabis products tested from New York patients who became sick after vaping.
And that’s important, as Vitamin E acetate was not found in nicotine vape samples. Still, but the FDA is still testing those samples to study their hazardous effects.
