During the summer we want to do more things. But, some of them are dangerous. Because we want to do more and go further, we can experience some possible problems. According to the Nebraska Regional Poison Center, the calls about the bleach exposure are increased during the summer. Bleach, in your house, can cause certain damages and injuries if it is swallowed or it gets in the eyes. Also, you cannot use it with other cleaning products. For example, if you use it with a product that contains ammonia or acids, you can form a gas. This gas is dangerous for you.
During the summer, we also experience insects and stings. Some people also need help due to barbecue-related toxins. According to the poison center, if you are bitten or stung, you must watch for the signs of an infection. If there is an infection, you must go to a doctor.
During the summer, we all use insect repellents. Some of them contain DEET. Experts say that those products, with less than 10% of DEET are equally effective as those that contain higher concentrations.
During the summer, our children spend more time outside. The risk of exposure to certain poisons, like: kerosene, gasoline, torch fuel and etc. is increased. These things must be stored away from your children. They can be very dangerous and you child shouldn’t even touch them.
There are certain precautions you can use when you have a barbecue with your friends. In order to make sure that bacteria are destroyed, cook the meat at 160 degrees. By doing this, you will be sure that all bacteria are destroyed. The best solution is to use a food thermometer.
