Northern New England poison reports due to e-cigarette liquid nicotine

As e-cigarettes become more popular – doubling in national sales since 2012 – more cases of accidental poisoning by liquid nicotine have been reported to poison control centers.

More than 1,350 calls to poison control centers nationwide last year were related to e-cigarette liquids, triple the number in 2012, and the majority of them concerned children who ingested or were otherwise exposed to the liquid, according to National Poison Data System data cited in the New York Times.

Far fewer cases have been reported locally, according to the Northern New England Poison Center, which serves Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
