Health Check: E-Cigarette Liquid
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned that the number of phone calls to U.S. poison control centers related to e-cigarette use has increased from just one call per month on average in 2010 to nearly 200 calls per month in early 2014. E-cigarette liquid poisonings now account for more than 40 percent of poison center calls. More than half of the calls involved children younger than 5 years old.
