Be aware of toxic terrors

THE Australian Medical Association (AMA) Queensland is advising Ipswich parents to look out for toxic terrors lurking in their home in the new year.

AMA Queensland president Dr Gino Pecoraro said poisoning was one of the major causes of hospital admissions for children between the ages of one and four.

“We are urging parents to learn about the hidden hazards in their home and avoid a trip to the emergency room,” he said.

“Recent rain has meant venomous snakes are more prevalent this summer but it is the toxic substances around the house and garden that parents often aren’t aware of which are most likely to cause harm.

“New Year is a great time to clean up inside and out and make sure anything toxic is safely away from little hands.”
