The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Thursday issued a statement to Jul Labs Inc. Has banned US sales of vaping products since, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal earlier this week.
Fox News contacted Zul for a digital comment; FOX Business also contacted Altria, which has a 35% stake in Juul, for comment.
Over the past few years, doctors and other health officials have become increasingly aware of the dangers of using e-cigarettes, and especially of young people.
Initially, waping was considered by many to be a good alternative to cigarette smoking. “Secondhand smoke eliminates the dangers for those near waping,” the Mayo Clinic said.
In recent years, however, e-cigarettes have become headlines in the wake of the growing web-connected deaths across the country.
“If there are reports [about the FDA ban] True, removing Zul from the marketplace will be long overdue and very welcome, “the Lung said in a statement to the Fung News Digital of the American Lung Association ahead of its announcement on Thursday.
“Zul is largely responsible for the youth vaping epidemic,” the group continued. “It’s been the most popular e – cigarette among teenagers for many years and is still the most popular today.”
“Ending sales of all Joel products, including its menthol-flavored product, sends the message to companies that their gross negligence towards public health will not be tolerated,” the group said.
‘Shortness of breath’
Electronic cigarettes battery-powered devices; Most commonly heat a liquid solution of various flavors such as fruit grapes, mango, candy and mint. According to many sources, it has attracted young children to products that contribute to the vaping epidemic.

Many young people also add other additives that can harm vaping devices such as CBD oils, the Mayo Clinic says on its website.
“Not much is known about long-term health hazards, as last-generation washing equipment has only been widely used for the past 5-7 years.”
“When patients come to the emergency department with respiratory distress from waping, it can be challenging for doctors to treat them because of the difficulty in correctly identifying what they are inhaling, especially when they are in an intubate or unconscious state,” the agency said.
According to the 2018 analysis of the Truth Initiative, a non-profit tobacco control company based in Washington, DC, JUUL’s popularity with young people has fueled unprecedented growth in vaping products.
The same group suggests that JUUL e-cigarettes are pharmaceutical-grade “using propylene glycol and glycerol to make up the bulk of our e-liquids”.
The liquids “when heated, they form an aerosol containing nicotine, benzoic acid and flavors,” the company said.
Problems with Vaping
Waping – contrary to what many people believe – is “not harmful. Most people are unaware of the long-term health risks because last generation waping devices have only been widely used for the past 5-7 years,” Dr. Hayes, an intern and director of the Nicotine Dependence Center at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, J. Taylor, told Fox News Digital on Wednesday.
“Kids and teens should not be vaped,” he said.
“Nicotine dependence also occurs with regular vaping,” he said. “We’re not sure if high levels of the psychoactive substance nicotine have a negative long – term effect on a young person’s developing brain.”
“Learning disabilities and mental illness are just two of the many concerns in this regard,” Dr. Hayes said. “Finally, some young people may switch to tobacco use as nicotine addiction can lead to vomiting.”
Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are currently the most commonly used tobacco product among young people, say health and prevention services experts at Centara Healthcare in Virginia.
“Parents should and should talk openly and regularly with their children about drug use prevention.”
“E-cigarettes are part of the Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) group, which includes e-pens, e-pipes, e-hookah, e-cigars and vaping products,” according to Kira Koon and Megan McAnally. .
They say e-liquid contains chemicals such as propylene glycol and formaldehyde, which can cause irreversible damage to the brain, lungs, blood vessels and more.
It states that “the most addictive chemical is nicotine, which adversely affects adolescent brain development. E-cigarettes have not been found to be safe or effective in quitting smoking.”
What parents can do
Nicotine can harm brain development during adolescence and adolescence.
Dr. Hayes suggested that parents talk openly and regularly with their children about avoiding drug use.
Parents “should be encouraged to engage in safe social activities such as team sports and band; lead them towards healthy friendships; and create opportunities for many great role-modeling adults in their lives inside and outside the family,” he said.
“When you see unhealthy behavior, talk about it openly,” he added. “Asking good questions and providing feedback and support is crucial,” he said.
The biggest challenge of anti-waping messages
E-cigarettes entered the US market in 2007-2008 – and since 2014, they have been recognized by American Lung Association experts as the most commonly used tobacco product among US youth.
“Many young people find that these products are not the ‘nasty’ cigarettes used by older generations. Teenagers are interested and attracted to the use of e-cigarettes for a number of reasons, such as tastes, friends watching and ‘effective’ use of the products. These products are harmless and ‘high-tech’. There is often a misconception that it is just ‘water vapor’, “the group said in a statement.
It also directed parents and others to learn more about talking to children about waping on TalkAboutVaping.org.
Criticisms abound over the new ban
Critics of the FDA’s complete ban on the sale of Zul products, however, have much to say about the action.
Homeschooling mother Bethany Mandel told Fox News Digital on Thursday morning, “As inflation and rising gas prices, along with the high number of fentanyl doses, the White House’s priorities are hampered.”
“What kind of black market will this create – and will this decision ultimately create more problems than it will solve? These are questions that big government bigwigs never ask,” she added.
“Americans make countless decisions that have negative health consequences and should not infringe on the White House’s frustrating freedom to change the narrative at a time when its approval ratings are at an all-time low,” Mandel told Fox. News Digital.

Mandel, who has five children, said “it’s an upside down world when distributing crack pipes in safe smoking kits, while the White House is always attacking legal smoking forms.”
