Exploding E-Cigarettes

The long-term health risks of electronic cigarettes must be added to the immediate concern of explosions. As e-cigarette use rises, it appears that serious injuries are increasing. A regional burn center in Seattle reports they are treating about 2 incidents per month now. These cases include explosions in the mouth, hands, and pockets resulting in flame, chemical burns, and flying object injuries.

PositiveTip: Avoid the dangers, short- and long-term, of e-cigarettes by simply avoiding their use.
