EDINBURG – A spike in vaping-related illnesses and death have health officials urging e-cigarette users to stop.

There are 25 cases now on record in Texas, including one from Hidalgo County.

Nationwide, 380 confirmed and probable cases of lung disease associated with e-cigarette products.

A local distributer says the only ingredients that should go into the liquid used in e-cigarettes are: vegetable glycerin, natural and artificial flavoring, propylene glycol and possibly nicotine.

He added that’s not always the case.

The FDA and CDC recently released a statement saying in many cases where a person has fallen ill due to vaping the presence of vitamin E and THC was found in the product.
