For the Thursday November 14 vaping update, published by the Centers for Disease Control, 29 patients have been admitted to hospitals due to lung damage caused by vaping.

The CDC suspects that the vitamin E acetate, contained in e-cigarettes is the cause of the damage in these victims. The CDC strongly encourages e-cigarettes companies to stop using vitamin E acetate as an additive in their cigarettes, at least until further research has been done.

E-cigarette companies such as Juul have also been working on combating the rising epidemic, by stopping the production of their mint-flavored pods, one of their most popular flavors.
