Hopefully they will have them on a local TV show so others can learn from their expertise.

Hopefully the idiots that don't understand science will learn something. There are people that think that Terminix sprays methyl bromide in their house every month.

Have you been reading about the smart power meters? Causes people to grow horns and tails, apparently, and can video you taking a bath.

I'm ok. I'll diffuse some frankincense ness entail oil, lube up with colloidal silver and sleep with onions taped to my feet. These reptilian overlords will not trick me

This article makes it seem that the incident in St. John prompted the Poison Awareness Team... I'll bet this was already planned. Most poisonings happen from products in your own home. I have never met a single person who has methyl bromide stored in their home, but have met many with aspirin which is a leading cause for poisonings.

Sigh, yes, spartygrad. The USVI is very fortunate that the FL poison control center extended their services to us, and from what I remember, but cannot verify, is they added the Virgin Islands to their region a few years ago-I don't think VI was originally included in the region.

I kind of remember reading an article about them that mentioned just what you said about household chemicals. Maybe with the St John incident there will be more interest in getting more info on poisons.

You can read more about FL center on their website.

Knowing of possible poisons is important to me with a baby. I am not in any way discounting their message, I just don't want this to be all about St. John and methyl bromide

Protecting families was their original mission. If I can find out their schedule, I'll see if I can attend a session.

Will report back if I attend one.

I would be interested in attending too. From a completely non biased point of view of course..*-)

If you do attend, please write a public service educational piece and send it to various publications. In the past they have focused on fish poisoning.

People in the States have died lately using generators because of carbon monoxide poisoning. So sad, and people need to be reminded over and over about dangers of seemingly harmless chemicals and machines.
