Latest e-cig fear: Poisoned kids

Minnesota health officials reported 50 cases of children drinking e-cigarette liquid in 2013, a tenfold increase over the previous year.

Reports of children consuming poisonous liquid from e-cigarettes rose sharply in Minnesota last year, prompting health officials to warn that the state may be facing a new public health hazard.

Only one child was hospitalized as a result of consuming the nicotine-laced liquid, but the total number of cases — 50 — was a tenfold increase over 2012, the Minnesota Department of Health said Tuesday.
