According to the Israel Health Ministry, there is no evidence that smoking an e-cigarette will help someone quit smoking. "Be careful with what you put in your body".

All of the cases reported to the CDC "have a history of using e-cigarette products", the agency said. Others have been sickened by vaping a chemical containing THC and vitamin E acetate. He said that in all of the cases, vitamin E oil was present.

Checks in NY discovered vitamin E acetate is made use of as filler, producing up as substantially as 50% of the e-cigarette.

"We don't know what a lot of these substances are and you have an alarming rate of illness", Cuomo said. Signs of the illness include nausea, vomiting, fever and escalating shortness of breath.

Nova Scotia's chief medical officer of health has said he is sending informal email inquiries to respiratory specialists and intensive care units at Nova Scotia hospitals to see if there are any similar cases to what is happening in the U.S.

The CDC and FDA are now working together to gather all relevant information and are expected to release a report in the New England Journal of Medicine outlining the specifics of the disease they're studying, believed to be linked to e-cigarettes. Jennifer Layden, CMO and state epidemiologist for the Illinois Department of Public Health and lead author of the study, said affected patients typically were "healthy, young, with a median age of 19 years and a majority have been men". Five of those cases were reported just Monday morning. IN officials said the person who died there was an adult, but they did not say when it happened or release other details. He noted, "Although more investigation is needed to determine the vaping agent or agents responsible, there is clearly an epidemic that begs for an urgent response".

Officials have emphasized that it is not yet certain that vitamin E acetate is the cause of the illnesses.

With no cases of serious side-effects reported in the UK, Deborah Arnott, the chief executive of Action on Smoking and Health, has simply advised British vapers to ensure they're buying legal products. Investigators at University of Utah Health reported the findings in a letter published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

"It gives you a replacement for nicotine but it's still very harmful for you", Summers said.

Health authorities in Canada are closely monitoring increasing reports in the United States of respiratory illnesses in hundreds of people, mostly teenagers, potentially linked to vaping.

Kahn said the health minister would consult with experts in "informal roundtables" on vaping in the coming weeks. Even though e-cigarettes can often be a good substitute for actual cigarettes, the unknown variable causes concerns.

She says the nicotine content is particularly unsafe for teens because nicotine interferes with the way the teenage brain functions. And they fear that kids who might never have picked up cigarettes are taking up vaping.
