CDC warns about dangers of vapingCDC officials Friday suggested that people stop vaping until officials get a better handle on an epidemic of serious lung disease that has sickened as many as 450 people, with three deaths, in 33 states.

Indiana this morning confirmed a third death related to the vaping illness, following deaths in Illinois and Oregon, the latter a man who bought marijuana vapor from a dispensary, state officials said. A possible fourth U.S. death is being investigated, CDC said.

"We believe a chemical exposure is likely associated with these illnesses...but more investigation is needed,” said Dana Meaney-Delman, who heads the CDC's response to the epidemic. So far, no device, product or substance has been linked to all cases, she told reporters on a call.
