The American Lung Association has issued a warning declaring that e-cigarettes are unsafe. This comes after a sixth death linked to vaping was confirmed. tomforemancnn reports.

There are now six deaths due to lung illnesses related to e-cigarette use that have been confirmed in Kansas, California, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Oregon. Here's everything you need to know about the vaping epidemic in the United States.

Healthy teen's symptoms baffle doctors 02:17Kansas health officials reported the patient who died was older than 50, had a history of underlying health issues and"was hospitalized with symptoms that progressed rapidly," according to a statement from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.Health officials said it wasn't clear what type of vaping products the patient was using.The first death from lung illness linked to vaping in the United States was reported in Illinois in August. The person who died was an adult. Oregon saw the second death in the nationwide outbreak, then Minnesota and Indiana. The fifth death, reported Friday, was in California.What have vaping illness investigation found so far?The federal investigation into the link between vaping and severe lung illnesses is ongoing and has not identified a cause, but all reported cases have indicated the use of e-cigarette products and some patients have reported using e-cigarettes containing cannabinoid products, such as THC.There are also separate investigations being conducted in separate states.New York health officials said last week that extremely high levels of the chemical vitamin E acetate were found in nearly all cannabis-containing vaping products that were analyzed as part of the investigation. At least one vape product containing this chemical has been linked to each person who fell ill and submitted a product for testing in the state.Vitamin E chemical is 'key focus' in vaping illness investigation, health officials sayLaboratory tests conducted at the New York State Department of Health's Wadsworth Center in Albany showed"very high levels" of vitamin E acetate in the cannabis-containing samples, the state health department announced.Vitamin E acetate is now"a key focus" of the state's investigation into the illnesses, the New York Department of Health said. Some of the products that have been found to contain vitamin E acetate are candy-flavored vapes.New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday ordered the state health department to issue subpoenas to three companies that market thickening agents to companies that manufacture vape liquids -- and more companies are expected to be investigated. The Wadsworth Center obtained samples of thickeners from those three companies and determined"they are nearly pure vitamin E acetate oil," according to the governor's office.What do doctors say?The CDC says e-cigarettes should never be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women or adults who do not currently use tobacco products. While an investigation into the lung illness outbreak is ongoing, people should consider not using e-cigarette products and people who do should monitor themselves for symptoms, the CDC said Friday.Teen vaping continues to rise while other drug use declines, survey finds"It is time to stop vaping," Dr. Lee Norman, secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the state health officer, said in the statement Tuesday announcing the country's sixth death."If you or a loved one is vaping, please stop. The recent deaths across our country, combined with hundreds of reported lung injury cases continue to intensify. I'm extremely alarmed for the health and safety of Kansans who are using vaping products and urge them to stop until we can determine the cause of vaping related lung injuries and death," Norman said.Tuesday, the American Lung Association warned that"e-cigarettes are not safe" and can cause irreversible lung damage and disease."No one should use e-cigarettes or any other tobacco product. This message is even more urgent today following the increasing reports of vaping-related illnesses and deaths nationwide," Harold Wimmer, national president and CEO of the association, said in a written statement.Melania Trump tweets concerns over e-cigarettesThe American Medical Association recently urged the public to avoid the use of e-cigarette products until health officials further investigate and understand the cause of the outbreak."The AMA recommends anyone who has recently used e-cigarette products to seek medical care promptly if they experience any adverse health effects, particularly coughing, shortness of breath or chest pain," Dr. Patrice Harris, the association's president, said in a written statement Monday.Harris also had a message for the FDA."We must not stand by while e-cigarettes continue to go unregulated. We urge the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to speed up the regulation of e-cigarettes and remove all unregulated products from the market," she said in part."We also call on the FDA to immediately ban flavors, as well as marketing practices, that enhance the appeal of e-cigarette products to youth."What is the US Food and Drug Administration doing?FDA spokeswoman Stephanie Caccomo said in an emailed statement Tuesday that getting to the bottom of the illnesses linked with vaping remains a"top priority" for the agency and its partners.'use strict';CNN.Videx=CNN.Videx ||

Students say Juul employee told them device is 'totally safe' 02:26"Regardless of where products like e-cigarettes fall on the continuum of tobacco product risk, the law is clear that, before marketing tobacco products for reduced risk, companies must demonstrate with scientific evidence that their specific product does in fact pose less risk or is less harmful. JUUL has ignored the law, and very concerningly, has made some of these statements in school to our nation's youth," Dr. Ned Sharpless, acting FDA commissioner, said in the agency's news release Monday."We will continue to scrutinize tobacco product marketing and take action as appropriate to ensure that the public is not misled into believing a certain product has been proven less risky or less harmful," he said."We've also put the industry on notice: If the disturbing rise in youth e-cigarette use continues, especially through the use of flavors that appeal to kids, we'll take even more aggressive action."Some public figures and lawmakers have argued that the FDA could do more.'use strict';CNN.Videx=CNN.Videx ||

Students aim to stop vaping 'epidemic' 02:15The goals of the three-year program include banning all flavored e-cigarettes, and stopping Juul and other e-cigarette companies from marketing their products to children, the organization said in a news release. It will be led by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, which will partner with other leading organizations including parent and community groups concerned about the nation's children and health.The launch comes on the same day Bloomberg and Matt Myers, of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, penned an opinion piece in The New York Times. They wrote that"banning flavored e-cigarettes is the most important thing we can do to reduce use among young people" and took aim at the FDA for not doing so.Get CNN Health's weekly newsletter Sign up here to get The Results Are In with Dr. Sanjay Gupta every Tuesday from the CNN Health team.

Whom ever thought that inhaling glycerin was a good idea...? Stick to tobacco, it kills you much slower... But it sure makes pretty smoke This is why we have the second amendment. Governments that shut down entire industries. It’s astounding how fast the administration jumped on this issue after six deaths (which likely were the result of off the market devices) while thousands upon thousands of deaths actually caused from AR 15s never get a serious look

At least with real cogs it takes 30-40-50 yrs of smoking to kill someone. How long has the vapes been out? 2-3 yrs? Bootleg thc vapes. As expected CCN can’t get its facts straight. Conflating the two is purposeful and dishonesty done. Legalize it. Only 6 and you Fleshies are freaking out? Yet Mass Shootings where ai get more souls gets no reaction

Trump will ban flav vapes. 6 adults have died but not due to vaping. Its due to the THC vape carts with additive oils sold on the black market. So he's quick to ban what 6 ADULTS died from, BC he says he's saving kids. But more kids died by school shootings, NONE from vaping! I have teenagers and the struggle to educate these kids about harmful effects of vaping are real. I have been reading about the chemicals in these vapes yet most teenagers believe they are safe compared to coverages.

36,000 dead annually from guns.

4th vaping-related death reported, CDC vows to find out 'what is making people sick'As vaping-related illnesses and deaths continue to climb, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is vowing to work with state and federal agencies to figure out what is causing illnesses in e-cigarette users. Is say the nicotine is the culprit. Why don't you guys report on how thousands of people a month die from cigarettes? Is it because big tobacco is paying you guys to report on vape pens so people will go back to cigarettes? Suck on a lollipop or pacifier.

How about a story on the 480,000 deaths by cigarettes per year in the US? OH WAIT... That's not what you're paid to write ;) Not until I see a good reason why people smoke or vape. I won't spare a thought if you die. 6 people! Yet no limit on how many people can die from guns. Trump says vaping makes companies rich yet ignores the big money from guns. Won’t even back something as simple as background checks for all gun sales. And don’t give me the I can’t loan my gun to my friend argument.

6 people have died ... meanwhile thousands perish because of shootings every year ... The narrative that flavored juice is marketed to kids is ridiculous... I own a vape store and maybe 5% of customer use tobacco flavor... I card everyone as do most vape stores, flavored vape juice is no different than watermelon vodka or rootbeer beer...

What are these people vaping... it helped me stop smoking cigarettes.. that was 6 years ago.. don’t get why you would start vaping if you never smoked . The juice ain’t that good 6 people die related to vaping: 'MUST BAN E-CIGARETTES!!!' Hundreds of kids die for school shootings: 'Eh, guns aren't the problem'

I hear kids are vaping through the barrels of AR-15s. What can we do to stop it? I bet more have died from cigarettes today. 🤔

Six deaths from vaping-related lung illnesses reported amid a growing number of cases nationwideThe woman had a history of underlying illnesses, but developed severe lung disease and died within a week of starting to use e-cigarettes, said state health officials. I been saying this shit is no good ! Try reporting the truth about this. Instead of making out to be about vaping when clearly it isn't. Nothing about black market hemp oil in that headline. Because that's the truth.

Over 50 and had health problems. So what is the connection to vaping? She already had breathing issues before vaping. So yeah let's blame vaping. Omg six! That’s like 1/2 as many as pools Darwinism at its best!!!! GovHowardDean GunReformNow Maybe unregulated markets are like bad or something. “We will not stand idly by as these products become an on-ramp to combustible cigarettes or nicotine addiction for a generation of youth,” Sec Azar said. We will stand idly by as people use guns to slaughter 1000's of people of all generations every year. With THAT we are ok.

Maybe we should glue Juuls to assault rifles 6?! WoW, and how many by guns ? So everyone dying all at once? So sad News!

IT is the Black Market vapor that is causing these deaths. Not the everyday vape store. The idea that this story is not covering the real problem and now government will consider closing vale stores pretty much over night without the facts is so wrong. But guns are okay. 6 people die: Ban them! 30,000 die, every year: Thoughts and prayers!

How much the tobacco companies payed for CNN? To telling people fake news like this 😠😠 Trump wants to do something about e-cigarettes because of 6 deaths. While those are tragic, what about the thousands of deaths from guns? Still nothing huh? the news really does love scaring people. She was over 50 had a history of health problems, and says she just started vaping, and they don't even know what kind of vaping products they were, or anything...

Let Darwin do his valuable work. Slap a HUGE tax on these things. Vaper make problem to people around him or her. I hate them More people in the USA have died of shooting/mass shooting incidents than vaping but the president’s wife is concerned about vaping deaths? 😲 GTFOH... 6 Victims who died to E-Cigs compared to the millions, if not, BILLIONS of people who have already died, or currently terminally ill from all forms of cancer by actual cigarettes? I don’t see Philip Morris and those corporate tobacco company’s in this report.

How many people died from gunshot this year alone? The only way to survive 😂🙌 vaping is not good. nope RaldaneWright tomforemancnn joeuglyjoe tomforemancnn The tobacco companies are so smooth.. Right now their R&D have something in the 'pipe' line to replace vaping. Too much money to be made on the lungs of the stupid.

tomforemancnn tomforemancnn I mean honestly; do you blame them? tomforemancnn It’s not the vape juice that’s causing problems,it’s kids putting THC or off brand shit into the juice. I’ve been vaping for a while and I don’t have problems. tomforemancnn Evidence is anecdotal only.

I would wager upward of 150 died today alone from actual cigarettes. These morons are buying unregulated products, making their own juice and rigs, etc. Nothing sold in a shop will have this effect on you. Vaping is still as healthy as it gets (i know it’s not) for nicotine users
