U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that it had identified 193 potential cases of severe lung illness tied to vaping in 22 states as of August 22, including one adult in IL who died after being hospitalized. Those who reported being ill claimed to use a variety of vaping products, including ones containing marijuana, THC and nicotine.
Neil Johnston, from the Manitoba Lung Association, says while it's too soon to say whether or not vaping played a role in the person's death, it's important people understand what they're inhaling.
Brian King, deputy director for research translation in the CDC's smoking and health office warned, "E-cigarettes are still fairly new, and scientists are still learning about their long-term health effects".

The cause of the illness is not yet known and it has not been linked to any particular device or brand, according to Maryland health officials.

Pipe said there is now an epidemic of youth vaping in Canada that coincides with an increase in youth and adolescent smoking rates for the first time in more than three decades. Health experts say e-cigarettes are not safe for youth, young adults, pregnant women or adults who do not now use tobacco products. "Smokers who switch completely to vaping can significantly reduce their exposure to many toxic chemicals found in tobacco smoke". The specific products used were unknown.
