Poison Prevention Week

National Poison Prevention Week 2009 is March 15-21
Each year, more than 100 children ages 14 and under die as a result of unintentional poisoning. Non-pharmaceutical products such as cosmetics, cleaning substances, plants, foreign bodies, toys, pesticides, art supplies, and alcohol are responsible for 56 percent of poisoning exposures for children under 5 years of age. Parents need to store these products up and away from children, preferably in a locked cabinet.
