Every year, between 2 to 4 million poisonings occur in the United States, according to the New Jersey Poison Control Center. Unintentional poisoning can be caused by over-the-counter, prescribed or illegally obtained pain medications and sedatives; antidepressants and other medications prescribed for various health conditions; drug and alcohol interactions; and even household cleaning products. Join Barbara Vaning, MHA, EMT instructor with Princeton Health's Community Wellness, to learn about identifying poisons, how poisons can enter the body, dos and don'ts of using medications and household cleaners, and what to do if you suspect poisoning.
