Many people use dietary supplements for a variety of reasons. However, there are concerns affecting children that should be noted. A recent study reported in the Journal of Toxicology stated that calls to poison control centers about dietary supplements had increased by 50% from 2005 to 2012 and that 70% of those calls involved children under age six. More than 90% of those were unintentional.

So, if there are dietary supplements in use in your home, make sure young children cant get to them! This is one supplement to their diet they do not need!
