Turn home into poison free zone
It's an alarming statistic. More than one million children were unintentionally
poisoned in 1998, and 90 percent of those poisonings occurred in the home.
According to Dr. Joan Shook, director of the emergency center at Texas
Children's Hospital in Houston, unintentional poisonings are 100 percent
"All household products, medication and alcoholic beverages should be
locked away and out of reach of children," said Shook. "When they are in
use, potentially poisonous items should never be left unattended," she
Shook advises parents never to refer to taking medicine as eating candy.
"It's better to say it's medicine so your child can develop a distinction
between the two," she said.
