Synopses & Reviews
Anything in your home can be toxic under the right circumstances--they are everyday poisons. But everything in your home can also be non-toxic, depending on the kind of exposure--this is why a commonsense approach is needed.
Written by a poison specialist, this indispensable volume gives you accurate, up-to-date and truly useful information about the household products you use the most.
More than just a first aid how-to guide, The Commonsense Guide to Everyday Poisons describes typical ingredients found in household products and explains what they are, where they come from and what they do. Historical and off-beat information is often included, as well as suggestions for DIY projects.
Armed with this knowledge you can make informed decisions about the products you want in your home, and be prepared for the kind of accidental exposures that can happen at any time.
