Second death linked to vaping reported

A person in Oregon, United States died from severe lung illness in July after using an e-cigarette or other vaping device, the state’s health department has reported. It is the second known death amid a national outbreak of vaping-linked respiratory illness; the first was reported in Illinois, United States in August.

In addition, health officials said they have detected an oil derived from vitamin E in many of the marijuana products used by people who became sick, the Washington Post reports. However, tests have not revealed any obvious contaminants in the nicotine samples. At least 215 severe lung illnesses that developed after vaping are being investigated in 25 states in the United States.
