Sixth U.S. vaping-related death reported

TEASER: Officials sound the alarm as vaping-related illness on the rise There's been a 6th reported casualty from a mysterious vaping-related illness in the United States.

The individual was from Kansas...but some 450 cases of vaping-related lung illness across 33 states and one U.S. territory are now being investigated.

In Houston Tuesday, Dr. David Persse with the Houston Health Department said that at least three teens have been hospitalized after using e-cigarettes.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) DR. DAVID PERSSE, HOUSTON HEALTH DEPARTMENT, SAYING: "When you look across the nation, there does appear to be a lot of the folks who -- the young people that have been hospitalized -- do admit that they were using THC based product." The CDC/FDA investigation has not linked the illnesses to any specific e-cigarette product.

But there's increasing pressure to clamp down on vaping.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is calling for a national ban on flavored e-cigarettes, appearing on CBS This Morning to make his point.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) CBS THIS MORNING ANCHOR SAYING (OFF CAMERA): "You call this in an op-ed an 'urgent public health crisis' and say tobacco companies are behind it." (SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER NEW YORK CITY MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG SAYING: "Oh, there's no question about that.

They run these enormous ads every day in the paper, saying 'we'll help you stop smoking', but they've never released any evidence whatsoever that it does anything to help you stop smoking, in fact, most people that vape never smoked before." The American Medical Association on Monday urged Americans to stop using electronic cigarettes of any sort until scientists have a better handle on the illnesses.

The American Vaping Association did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
