"While the CDC investigation of the possible cases of lung illness and deaths reportedly associated with the use of e-cigarette products is ongoing, service members and their families or dependents are encouraged not to use e-cigarette products", said Dr. Terry Adirim, deputy assistant secretary of defense, Health Services Policy and Oversight.

According to the Health District, the Galveston man is between the ages of 18 and 22.

A new CDC report has revealed acute lipoid pneumonia to be among the outbreak of mysterious lung-related illnesses spreading across the US.

Proponents have touted that e-cigarettes are healthier, safer alternatives to traditional tobacco products. The devices, available in the United States since 2006, work instead by heating a liquid that turns into vapor and is inhaled.

Additionally, those exposed secondhand were also at much lower risk from e-cigarettes than from traditional ones, though some risk might still exist.

The CDC defines confirmed cases as patients who developed a breathing illness after vaping and underwent extensive testing that ruled out an infection.

The CDC and the FDA have asked Americans to refrain from using e-cigs until their investigations have been concluded. Other reported only vaping nicotine, while some patients used both.

After receiving intravenous methylprednisone, which treats inflammation, their conditions improved and they were sent home with more medications.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the new numbers Thursday.

Additional states are also investigating potential cases, the CDC said. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is running its own tests on 120 vaping liquid samples.

"We would be shut down overnight without flavors; one hundred percent", said Jason Stanifer. On Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced that the government would ban thousands of flavors used in e-cigarettes.

"Anyone who uses an e-cigarette or vaping product should not buy these products off the street and should not modify or add any substances to these products that are not intended by the manufacturer", CDC officials said.

The CDC recommends that vapers who switched from cigarettes not return to smoking, and if they continue to use e-cigarettes, monitor themselves for symptoms.

E-cigarettes generally have been considered less risky than regular cigarettes, but health officials have warned that nicotine is harmful to developing brains. E-cigarettes are already illegal to sell in the USA to people under 18 or 21, depending on the state.
