In 2019, media reports began to appear about people, especially young people, being hospitalized with serious lung disease caused by vaping. Several people nationwide have died from this lung disease. While the cause of this illness is still under investigation by National Jewish Health and many other research organizations, it is not yet fully understood. While many of the cases seemed to be related to Vitamin E in vaping liquids, some people became ill for unknown reasons. The CDC recommends:
