  • Bug Spray

    Bug Spray

    The warmer weather is upon us, and with it comes quite possibly one of its only drawbacks: BUGS. While some bugs are fun for kids to catch and are pretty to look at, like fireflies and ladybugs, others are just down-right nuisances, especially mosquitoes and ticks. So what's the best way to keep these critters away without harming your family's health? It's not with that can of DEET-laden bug spray.

    According to Duke University Medical Center pharmacologist Mohammed Abou Donia, DEET should never be used on an infant because "their skin is too thin to provide an adequate barrier against absorption, and their systems cannot metabolize drugs and chemicals as well as an older child or an adult." Abou Donia further warns that DEET-containing products should never be used with medications - even something as common as an antihistamine - because of the risk of toxic and long-term side effects, like destruction of brain cells, muscle coordination, memory loss, and joint pain. YIKES!

    But the Consumer Product Safety Commission is taking to the airwaves this week to give parents a warning before summer kicks into full swing: Use common sense precautions if you set up a plastic or portable pool in your backyard. The Feds say about 35 kids under the age of four die each year in these pools.

    The pools in question are usually are about 18 to 48 inches deep, can hold anywhere from approximately 200 to more than 5,000 gallons of water and range in price from around $50 to $750. The American Academy of Pediatrics reports there's been a recent increase in the sales of these pools and the group's Technical Report on the Prevention of Drowning determines, "These pools are oft
