Three Houstonians have been hospitalized during the past month after using e-cigarettes, health officials announced Tuesday.

But Bowers believes instead of removing flavoring, local municipalities should do a better job of enforcing laws restricting the sale of vaping products to minors, which is something the Rockland County Health Department says it does regularly.

Dr. Lee Norman, the Kansas State Health Officer and Secretary for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, says that health officials nationwide continue to work aggressively to gather information and determine the cause of these lung injuries.

"Many teens have risky misperceptions that vaping is harmless", the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare said in the news release.

The announcement comes after it was revealed on Friday that a fifth person in the U.S. has died from a mysterious lung illness linked to vaping.

To date, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention investigation has not uncovered evidence that vaping-related illnesses are infectious.

"We agree with the FDA - if you don't want to die or end up in a hospital, stop vaping illegal THC oils immediately", said a spokesman from the American Vaping Association.

The Georgia Department of Public Health said Monday two cases of vaping illness have been reported in the state. "Don't put yourself in harm's way, and please follow the recommendations of public health officials".

Symptoms among the reported cases included shortness of breath, fever, cough and vomiting.

As the number of Ohioans who have suffered lung illness from e-cigarettes continues to rise, the Ohio Department of Health said it will target youth and parents with $4 million in new initiatives to prevent and reduce vaping.

Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration on Monday sent a warning letter to Juul, the largest distributors of electronic cigarettes in the United States, accusing it of illegally touting nicotine pads used in e-cigarettes as less harmful than cigarettes.
