Time has closed for vape makers like Juul. It turns out that over the past week, US health officials have announced at least 450 cases of serious lung disease that may have been caused by the use of substances in electronic cigarettes, the popular vapes. The cases ran in 33 states, and brought concern. Faced with all this, the country's president, Donald Trump, decided to ban the electronic cigarette. The decision was taken at an emergency meeting held Wednesday at the White House, which was attended by advisers such as Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar and the interim commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration. Norman Sharpless Medicines.
 The White House ruling came just a day after former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg called for a ban on flavored substances (also called juice, liquids used to "smoke") during an interview with The New York Times. , arguing that "an 'urgent' health crisis" was happening. Trump said to the US press, "Not only is it a problem in general, but specifically with children. We may well do something very, very aggressive about it."
 The disease situation worsened last Friday, when authorities at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed the third and fourth vape-related deaths in Minnesota and Indiana. Earlier, one death in Illinois and one in Oregon were announced. The Minnesota patient had a "long and complicated hospitalization that involved a serious lung injury that progressed to include other conditions," according to a statement.
 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the US state health departments say they are working together to find out what is really going on, and say they have not found a definite cause or cause. a clear connection between cases of lung disease but approaching possible clues. "We believe chemical exposure is probably associated with these diseases," says Dana Meaney-Delman, incident manager at CDC. "Continued research is needed to better understand if there is a true relationship between any specific product or substance and the diseases we are observing in the country," he adds.
 In turn, Mitch Zeller, director of the FDA Tobacco Products Center, says: "It is important to emphasize that identifying any compounds present in the samples will eventually become a piece of the puzzle." Last week, before the ban, Meaney-Delman warned, "Most importantly, while this investigation is ongoing, people should consider not using electronic cigarette products."
