"We are sad to report that this illness associated with vaping has now resulted in a death in Missouri and extend our condolences to his family", said Dr. Randall Williams, DHSS director.
In the USA, 380 confirmed or probably cases in 36 states and one territory. Regardless of the investigation, youths, young adults, pregnant women and adults who don't now use tobacco products should not use them, Dr. Anne Schuchat, the principal deputy director of the CDC, said during the briefing.
Schuchat said no e-cigarette or vaping product, substance, additive or brand has been consistently identified in all of the cases, nor has any one product or substance been conclusively linked to lung injury in patients. "Once the lungs are injured by vaping, we don't know how quickly it worsens and if it depends on other risk factors".
While numerous people who have developed lung problems reported using THC - the active ingredient in cannabis - a number have said they did not vape THC. "There's no one compound ingredient constituent including vitamin E acetate that is showing up in all of the samples".

Some people - especially youth and young adults, women who are pregnant and adults who do not now smoke - should not vape, CDC officials said. Majority involve vaping with THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, or both THC and nicotine.
People who became ill experienced cough, shortness of breath and chest pain, and in some cases, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain, health officials said. Governors are calling for prohibitions on flavors like bubble gum, cotton candy and banana split, which critics say are meant to entice young people into trying vaping.
