Liquid Nicotine In E-Cigarettes Could Be Deadly
Vials of poison are lurking in nearly every corner bodega. And according to reports, they're hidden beneath the flashy exteriors of e-cigarettes, the popular alternative to traditional smokes.
The New York Times exposed the latest dangers of liquid nicotine -- the juice used to refill e-cigarettes -- and warned parents of its potentially fatal effects in the hands of children. If the liquid is ingested or absorbed by contact with skin, it can lead to seizures and, potentially, death. “A teaspoon of even highly diluted e-liquid can kill a small child,” the outlet notes.
