What's Vitamin E acetate?

Post by lovenord » Wed Nov 13, 2019 9:24 am

If you have read the latest Vaping Crisis news, you must learn a new work 'Vitamin E acetate'.
But what's Vitamin E acetate?

Vitamin E acetate, an oily chemical added to some THC vaping liquids to thicken or dilute them, has emerged as “one very strong culprit of concern,” said Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at a press briefing.

The chemical, which is used in nutritional supplements and skin creams, isn’t safe to inhale. Sticky and honey-like, it hangs around in the lungs, health officials said, interfering with how they function. Samples taken from 29 patients in 10 states for a CDC Mortality and Morbidity Weekly report released Friday showed “direct evidence of vitamin E acetate at the primary site of injury within the lungs,” Schuchat said. The chemical was found in all samples, while other potential toxins — such as plant and mineral oils — weren’t.
