Info Edit

Poisoning occurs when people drink, eat, breathe, inject, or touch enough of a hazardous substance (poison) to cause illness or death. Some poisons can cause illness or injury in very small amounts. Illness may occur very quickly after exposure to a poison, or it may develop over several years with long-term exposure. It is considered an unintentional injury.
