[size=36]Dozens of Americans admitted to hospitals .. The reason?[/size]
enter dozens of people, mostly teenagers, to the hospital in the United States because of problems in the lungs recorded in recent weeks with a common factor among them all, a smoking electronic cigarettes, with no proof that the latter would be responsible for these injuries.
Health agencies in the northern states of Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin have reported coughing, shortness of breath, fatigue and turnover.
A total of 30 cases were recorded, of which 22 were investigated.
Officials in the three states said it was too early to say whether the problems were interrelated.
"So far, e-cigarette smoking is the only common factor in all of these cases, but we are trying to expand our research so we don't overlook anything," explained Thomas Hobt, a respiratory specialist at the Wisconsin health system.
Some young men also smoked cannabis in electronic cigarettes.
Electronic cigarettes have been available in the United States since 2006, and scientists have so far considered them "less harmful than a regular cigarette."
These cigarettes are very common among young people in the United States.These cigarettes smoked 3.6 million students in complementary schools and high schools in 2018, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
