A new warning came out Monday morning (May 9) about the potential dangers of electronic cigarettes.

A new study showed that poison control centers get more than 200 calls a month because children 6 and under are getting sick from e-cigarettes.

One child has died from injuries and several others have had seizures or comas.

In most cases, children swallowed the liquid nicotine.
