Use National Poison Prevention Week as a Chance to Raise Awareness
Poisonings with unusual substances are on the rise.
In the baffling "Tide Pod Challenge" social media trend, teens are chewing laundry packets. And accidentally swallowing or inhaling the detergent could lead to vomiting, seizures, difficulty breathing, etc.
Kids are also being fooled by drugs that resemble candy or food...gummy vitamins, e-cigarette "juice," marijuana cookies, iron tabs, etc.
