Here’s a snippet from the Pest Control Operators of California (PCOC) website:
Every year hundreds of thousands of California Children under the age of 5 years of age are poisoned in the home with household chemicals and medicines.
Poison Control Center estimates report that more than 90% of all poisonings are accidental. Common household products such as cleaners, detergents, mouthwashes, and even plants are involved in more than 50% of all poisonings. The remainder comes from common pharmaceutical products—cough and cold medicines, vitamins, and prescription drugs.
