Dr. John P. Rosa, opioid crisis expert, author and dynamic talks about the tragedy of toddlers being exposed to opioid and other OTC medications when in the care of grandparents and how these young children end up permanently damaged or worse as a result.
ROCKVILLE, MD. March 27, 2020: Owner of Accessible Beltway Clinics and opioid crises expert, Dr. John Rosa, posted a new blog on his website entitled, “65,000 Toddlers A Year Exposed To Drugs And Many Die As A Result,” in which Dr. Rosa urges anyone who cares for young children to be especially careful with keeping their medications safely out of reach.
Dr. Rosa states, “Very young children, I’m talking about toddlers, are being irreversibly harmed and/or are dying at an alarming rate due to the fact that they are getting access to drugs intended for their parents or grandparents.”
According to Dr. Rosa, “In a recent Mercola article entitled “Pediatric Drug Deaths On The Rise,” it was said that, “The Journal of Pediatrics reviewed patient records from the National Poison Data System of the American Association of Poison Control Centers.” He continues adding, “In that review the records showed “that 453,559 children aged 5 or younger were admitted to a health care facility following exposure to a potentially toxic dose of a pharmaceutical drug between 2001 and 2008.”
Dr. Rosa writes, “The percentage of people over 60 that are on several medications is alarming in itself but when you think about how many of them care for their grandchildren you can imagine my concern.” He goes on to add, “The labeled, days-of-the-week pill boxes are given to the majority of these people and what scares me is that it looks like a child’s toy with snapping plastic compartments with pretty colored objects inside.”s
