Did you know that e-cigs can poison a child?

The National Poison Data System says that an estimated number of 1,600 children below the age of 6 have been poisoned by those popular electronic cigarettes.
They haven't been smoking them or anything, but what they found is that the children are drinking the liquid nicotine from the dropper bottles that are used to refill the cigarettes.
The worst part about this is that a lot of these liquids are flavoured, so they could be drinking something that is strawberry flavoured or even bubble gum flavoured.
There is 1,500 milligrams of nicotine in one of those bottles. That much nicotine is enough to make any child sick with nausea, weakness and dizziness.  They can also cause seizures and upper respiratory problems.
For all of you vapers out there, keep those bottles up high were little hands can't get them and if they do get their grubby mitts on them, then call the Poison Control for immediate help. 1-800- 222-1222
