“We’re constantly evaluating apps, and consulting the latest evidence to determine risks to users’ health and well-being,” Apple spokesman Fred Sainz said in a statement. Evidence from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was used to remove the apps which linked the usage to deaths and lung injuries recently.
On Nov. 8 2019, CDC officials announced a “breakthrough” discovery, saying they identified vitamin E acetate in the lung fluids of 29 people sickened in the outbreak of dangerous vaping-related lung injuries. The finding points to the oil as a likely culprit in the outbreak. CDC’s discovery might cause other businesses to stop selling these vaping devices as country’s teenagers are gripped by this epidemic.
