There are 18,000 injuries a year, one child death every two weeks from flat-panel tv’s.
Our lives are enhanced in numerous ways by the electronic products we have in our homes. Even though these products may enhance our lives on a daily basis they can also be the most dangerous products we have. They are putting some of us, especially young children and the elderly, at risk of serious injury or even death. The risks run from flat-panel TVs that topple onto toddlers, to button-sized batteries that become poisonous pills.
