As E-Cigarette Poisoning Reports Rise, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Proposed Legislation Aimed at Preventing Child Poisonings from Electronic Cigarettes

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 08, 2014

As the Firm continues its investigation of serious health problems that may be attributable to the use of e-cigarettes ( ), Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that one Ohio lawmaker has proposed legislation that would subject these products to stricter regulation. According to a report from NewsNet 5 in Cleveland, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) is sponsoring The Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act, which would make it illegal to market electronic cigarettes to children and require childproof packaging on containers of liquid nicotine or “e-juice”.*

“Concerns about the potentially harmful effects of e-cigarettes have grown in recent months, especially in regards to children. It is not surprising that lawmakers like Senator Brown have taken notice of this important public health issue,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs, medical devices and consumer products. The Firm urges anyone who was hospitalized for nicotine poisoning, pneumonia, heart attacks, strokes, atrial fibrillation, or congestive heart failure that may have been caused by electronic cigarettes to report their experience to its new E-Cigarette Registry as soon as possible.

Electronic Cigarette Regulation

During a news conference held by Senator Brown on July 28th to announce the new legislation, it was noted that Ohio poison control centers had already received some 100 calls this year that were related to accidental liquid nicotine poisonings. Only 20 such calls were logged in the state in 2013. Nationwide, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported a total of 215 calls to poison control centers about liquid nicotine poisonings in February alone.*

Senator Brown was also among the Democratic lawmakers who recently sent a letter to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) asking the agency to ban the marketing of e-cigarettes to minors. Among other things, the August 4th letter pointed to research that suggests exposure to electronic cigarette marketing by children aged 12 to17 increased by 256 percent between 2011 and 2013. The letter also cites a study which found that middle and high school students who used e-cigarettes were more likely to smoke traditional cigarettes and less likely to quit smoking.**

In April, the FDA proposed new rules that would extend its regulatory authority to cover additional products that meet the legal definition of a tobacco product, including electronic cigarettes. Among other things, the new rules would allow the FDA to impose age and identification restrictions on the sale of e-cigarettes. The agency is accepting public comments on its proposal until August 8th. Individuals who wish to comment electronically may do so at ***

As part of its e-cigarette investigation, Bernstein Liebhard LLP is seeking to hear from individuals who may have experienced serious adverse health effects due to these products, including hospitalizations for nicotine poisoning, pneumonia, heart attacks, strokes, atrial fibrillation, or congestive heart failure. To report a problem to the Firm’s E-Cigarette Registry, please visit Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. Reports may also be made directly to the Firm by calling 800-511-5092.

Life Insurance for E-Cigarette Users Available at Non-Smoker Rates According to

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 11, 2014, a life insurance quote service which compares competing permanent and term life insurance products, is today announcing the availability of life insurance for e-cigarette users at non-smoker rates. “Life insurance for e-cigarette users is generally underwritten no differently than that of life insurance for a smoker. Virtually zero carriers have made a clear distinction between the use of an electronic nicotine delivery system and one that utilizes a toxic tobacco compound. There’s obviously a difference, and while quite a few carriers will grant non-tobacco rates to an electronic cigarette user should they be able to test negative for nicotine, I know of one that absolutely will deliver non-smoker rates so long as the applicant has not been a smoker of traditional cigarettes in over one year. This carrier is not only competitive, but also a household name”, said Eric Smith, the founder and independent life insurance agent of’s future plans involve forming a partnership with retailers of e-cigarettes in the Chicagoland area in a cross-marketing effort to build more brand awareness of both and the cooperating retailer. “E-cigarettes are definitely a growing industry, and life insurance for e-cigarette users should be as well since many are likely paying tobacco rates, which are often 100% higher, or rolling the dice and not carrying life insurance at all”, said Eric Smith.

E-cigarette users interested in getting life insurance at non-smoker rates are encouraged to contact via this contact form, or by calling 888.374.2764. All other users can view instant online quotes on the homepage of
