UPDATE 1-U.S. public health agency probes lung illnesses linked to e-cigarette useThe U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating a “cluster” of lung illnesses that it believes may be linked to e-cigarette use after such cases were reported in 14 states. The CDC said there was no evidence that an infectious disease was behind the illnesses and that more information was needed to determine whether they were in fact caused by e-cigarette use. The CDC is working with health departments in Wisconsin, Illinois, California, Indiana and Minnesota on the investigation.
