Each year, approximately 3 million people— many under age 5— swallow or have contact with a poisonous substance. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) offers tips to prevent and to treat exposures to poison. Poison can be found anywhere in the home, bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, garage. Medication being the leading cause of poisoning. Did you know that the most likely place your children could be poisoned is from grandma’s purse? Poisoning is a big risk factor especially for toddlers and preschoolers. Toddlers are especially at risk since everything goes in their mouths as they explore their world. Exploring little hands find pills that are confused for candy. Button batteries look like coins. Even outside some plants, berries or flowers could be poisonous. Never store cleaning fluids, or any toxic liquids in containers that look like food such as soda cans or bottles, old juice containers. What should you do in case of a poison emergency? Your first step should be to dial 1-800-222-1222 for your local Poison Control Center.
