More hand sanitizer drinking cases reported in dangerous trend- Los Angelos Times
This is an interesting article. There are several things that I wish that would have focused on though. For instance, takes the angle about how this a really serious issue towards teens with their opening sentence and additional statistics. However, the statistics show that there were 36:1 cases involving small children from 0 to 5 years old. This seems like it would be a bigger issue and the angle could be why are companies or parents doing anything with the bottles to stop little kids from drinking this.
Also, there are many other household chemicals that contain alcohol but there is no mention to whether this is more prevalent than any of those products.
Lastly, comments by a teen that has done this activity would be insightful. Understanding why a teen would do this would be important information for this articles. A quote from a doctor or some facts on the the effects of doing this would also be helpful. All the article says is that is can cause alcohol poisoning but a lot of things could do that. There are many people who may not no what the effects of alcohol poisoning are and may not think that this is such a big deal.
