Protect Against Poison Perils

Poison-proof your home

(HealthDayNews) -- Curious young children will smell, taste or play with almost anything they can get their hands on. As a result, every year millions of kids are accidentally poisoned in their own homes.

The California Poison Control System offers these tips for poison-proofing your home:

  • Lock up all medications including vitamins.
  • Never call medicine candy.
  • Never store chemicals in food or drink containers.
  • Know which plants in your home are dangerous.
  • Never leave your child in a room, even for a second, where chemicals or medications are within reach.
