Problems with E-cigarettes – level 2

12-09-2019 07:00

Health officials say that it is important to be careful when people use e-cigarettes. The number of illnesses connected to e-cigarettes continues to go up in the United States.

Health officials say that they know about 450 possible cases of illnesses in 33 states. These cases can be connected to e-cigarettes. This number is two times higher than the number two weeks ago, and five people already died in the last two months.

The officials say that they do not know exactly what chemical is in the e-cigarettes that is the reason for the problems. Some people smoked e-cigarettes and also marijuana, but some people smoked only e-cigarettes.

The officials say that it is better to use only products which people buy in stores and not in the streets.

Difficult words: official (a leader, a boss), case (a person who has some illness).
