(CNN) - Health officials are reporting a surge in the number of liquid nicotine poisonings from E-cigarettes, and children are particularly at risk.
That's according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report released Thursday. The report reveals that calls to poison control centers about E-cigarettes have shot up from about one per month, as of September 2010, to approximately 215 per month as of this February.
Liquid nicotine poisoning can occur from ingestion, inhalation, or skin absorption.
