US health officials are urging people to avoid e-cigarettes while the CDC investigates 450 cases of lung illness and six deaths that may be linked to chemical exposure while vaping.

Donald Trump on Wednesday announced his administration was considering a ban on flavored vaping products, amid a growing outbreak of severe lung disease in the United States that has claimed at least six lives. The restrictions, which have not been finalized, would affect sweet and fruity flavors, but not mint and menthol, which are also said to attract teens.

On Wednesday, federal health officials briefed President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump about the disease, which the CDC says has left six people dead and more than 450 people sick. But "at that point all flavored e-cigarettes other than tobacco flavor would have to be removed from the market".

The first lady, whose "Be Best" platform focuses in part on children's health and combating addiction, has spoken out a few times over her concerns over e-cigarette use by children.

Earlier this month, nearby MI became the first state in the nation to announce a ban on flavored e-cigarettes.

And the final leak was a promo video for the Pixel 4 which showcased a number of the features coming to the Android device. The Pixel 4 will come with a 5.7-inch OLED with Full HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 2800 mAh battery.

In March, the FDA issued a proposal to restrict the sale of flavored e-cigarettes.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the FDA and state health departments have been investigating this outbreak. Agency officials instead said they were studying if flavors could help smokers quit traditional cigarettes.

The Food and Drug Administration warned top e-cigarette maker Juul about making claims that its products were a safer alternative to smoking, ordering the company to stop making unproven claims for its products. Her call for action comes just days after health officials urged people to stop vaping until they can figure out why hundreds have been diagnosed with serious lung illnesses.

Most e-cigarettes contain colorless, flavorless chemicals such as propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, which create an inhalable vapor when heated.
