The New York Times has a nice story about an unintended consequence of the rising e cigarette trend. An increasing number of people are poisoning themselves on the nicotine juice you use to refill the tanks on e cigarettes. As a proponent of the technology, I admit I’d never considered the possibility that colorful liquids that look and smell like candy might be dangerous for kids. Though the juice thankfully hasn’t proven fatal yet, toddlers have been getting into the goop with increasing frequency.

Examples come from across the country. Last month, a 2 year old girl in Oklahoma City drank a small bottle of a parent’s nicotine liquid, started vomiting and was rushed to an emergency room.

That case and age group is considered typical. Of the 74 e cigarette and nicotine poisoning cases called into Minnesota poison control in 2013, 29 involved children age 2 and under. In Oklahoma, all but two of the 25 cases in the first two months of this year involved children age 4 and under.

The solution seems pretty simple Keep the stuff out of the reach of children and outfit the little bottles with a hard to open caps like the ones used on medicine bottles. I know the bottle I’m holding in my hand right now requires a little downward pressure to open, but I don’t know that it’s definitely child proof. They all should be. NYTimes

Top 5 Reasons to Switch to E Cigarettes

  1. Healthier by far

    Numerous studies have shown electronic cigarettes are safe, and do not contain the tar and cancer causing chemicals found in tobacco smoke.

  2. Highly cost effective

    If you’re a typical 20 per day smoker and your daily pack costs $15, that adds up to $5400 per year. By going electronic, you could consume the equivalent amount of vapour in a year and save around $5000.

  3. Legal to use indoors

    Electronic cigarettes are not tobacco products, so there are no laws prohibiting their use indoors. Which means you don’t have to go outside with the smoking lepers .
