 The new report, compiled by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, points to over 70,000 cases in which preteens under the age of 12—either accidentally or deliberately—ingested liquid hand sanitizers.preteens (aged 6–12 years) were more likely to report intentional ingestion and to have adverse health effects and worse outcomes than were younger children, suggesting that older children might be deliberately misusing or abusing alcohol hand sanitizers,” write the researchers in the study. Previous studies showed that sanitizer ingestion was starting to become a thing between 2005 to 2009, but the new figures, drawn from from the U.S. National Poison Data System, shows this trend is not just continuing, the problem is getting worse.
