(Undated) -- Poison control centers across the U.S. are getting a lot more calls about electronic cigarettes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that calls concerning e-cigarette liquids have gone from one per month in 2010 to more than 200 calls per month this year. Researchers also found that more than half the calls involved children five years old and under. E-cigarettes meanwhile, continue to grow in popularity. Supporters say they're a safer alternative to tobacco cigarettes and can help smokers kick the habit altogether.
