Vitamin E acetate, an ingredient added to tetrahydrocannabinol-based products (Thc, one of the major active ingredients of cannabis) has been identified as a very strong cause in diseases related to electronic cigarettes that caused 2051 people to become ill in the US, killing 39. support it was the US agency for disease control and prevention (Cdc), which left open the hypothesis that other chemicals or toxins could cause serious respiratory diseases.
For the first time, we detected a potential worrying toxin from patient biological samples, said Dr. Anne Schuchat, deputy director of the CDC in a briefing.
The discovery is based on the analysis of fluid samples taken from the lungs of 29 sick patients, where vitamin compounds were found. The samples, he explained, provided evidence of the presence of vitamin E acetate at the main site of lung injury.
