Poison Look-Alikes: Tips to Prevent Accidental Poisoning at All Ages
We often think of poisoning as something that happens to small children, but it's also easy for adults to mix up medications or mistake one product for another. Poison look-alikes are potentially harmful substances that can easily be mistaken for safe ones, usually because they look the same or have very similar packaging. Often, they are things that we use every day for cleaning, self-care, or first aid, but if they are used incorrectly or mistaken for something else, they can harm us. This publication provides information on what to look out for and how to prevent poisoning. This publication is part of a series of publications of the University of Maryland Extension and Family and Consumer Sciences/Healthy Homes, and was developed in partnership with The University of Georgia College of Family and Consumer Sciences Cooperative Extension.

Radon Mitigation Dos and Don'ts
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. A radon reduction system (radon mitigation) reduces high levels of indoor radon to acceptable levels. The system most frequently used is a vent pipe system and fan, which pulls radon from beneath the house and vents it to the outside. This publication educated homeowners on what they should do before, during and after a radon mitigation and what they should expect from a radon mitigator.
