Now this is a story that has us scratching our heads for sure. Last Saturday, the House of Representatives voted to cut $27.3 million (about 93%) of federal funding for poison control centers across the U.S. – a move that puts us (especially children, who are prone to ingesting toxic chemicals by mistake) at risk. Luckily, the bill was rejected by the Senate on March 9 but congressional leaders are negotiating a so-called compromise and may still cut vital funding to poison control centers across the nation.
