U.S. health officials are now investigating if seizures can be caused by nicotine-vaping devices. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration released a review of 35 cases of seizures among those using e-cigarettes, mostly young people. While they are not certain vaping is responsible, nicotine poisoning is known to cause seizures, convulsions, vomiting, and brain injury.
Heat is used to create an inhalable vapor of a flavored nicotine-based solution in most e-cigarettes. While the industry is thriving, there are few standards, including how much nicotine is delivered through a device. Many refillable e-cigarettes can be used with varying strengths of nicotine. The concern of nicotine poisoning through these devices is just one more potential health hazard flagged by the FDA. Even the device itself is tied to burns and explosions related to overheated batteries.
