Poisons and other toxic substances have been a subject of fascination and fear throughout history. Even with all the advances in medical science today, poisons still remain a serious health risk. Every year approximately 2 million cases of poisoning are reported to poison centers across the United States, with more than half of them involving children under the age of 6. Poisoning is the fourth most common cause of death among children. Because many poisonings are accidental, simple safety measures—such as keeping harmful substances out of reach of children—can help prevent them.
