Health experts warn of children consuming e-cigarette liquid
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Poison control centers across the U.S. have seen a drastic uptick in calls regarding children consuming liquid nicotine used in e-cigarettes, or vapes.
“Even a few drops can be dangerous to a child,” said University of Michigan Pediatrician Dr. Kristen Goncalves.
“A few drops can be really dangerous to a child... these devices contain one or two milliliters of a solution that contains nicotine... in an average-sized child, 1/6th of a milliliter could be potentially lethal,” she said.
Dr. Goncalves also warned of the solution’s colorful packaging that could be attractive to children.
