Man loses life due to vaping: Report

A person has reportedly died from what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention speculate to be a vaping or, e-cigarette related condition.

The CDC describes it as a severe, unexplained respiratory condition after reported vaping or e-cigarette use. Nearly 200 other cases of varying severeness have been reported across US, according to news portal TechCrunch.

It is unclear if vaping exacerbated or caused the pulmonary illness or if some byproduct of the nicotine cartridges that is risky.

In many cases, patients show a gradual start of symptoms, including breathing difficulty, shortness of breath, even gastrointestinal illnesses. No specific product has been identified or linked in all cases.
