Halloween Hazards

October 30th, 2017

HalloweenIt Halloween and the skeletons are being brought down from the attic and goblins and ghouls are now sat on my doorstep. A strange pagan celebration that as a child I never really participated in. Halloween wasn’t big outside the US, but with the introduction of mass commercialisation of seasonal events, I cant move through the super market without the kids getting me to buy Halloween related merchandise.

In keeping with the feel for this time of year, I did a quick “literature search” on the Hazards of Halloween” from a medical perspective and came up with this evidence based article. Have a a read and be afraid . . very afraid.
