E-Cigs Are Leading Cause of Increased Child Poisonings!

Hugely popular and supposedly safer for Adults, Electronic cigarettes are not toys for kids!

Quoted from a Today Show interview...

Kids are the biggest worry — as little as a teaspoon of highly concentrated liquid nicotine could cause serious harm, said Lee Cantrell, director of the San Diego division of the California poison control system. Reports of poisonings in kids jumped 10-fold at his site in the past 14 months.

“I went online and found some retailers selling concentrations of 7.2 percent nicotine in 100-milliliter bottles,” Cantrell said. “A teaspoon of that solution could potentially kill a child, there’s no doubt.”
