The Maryland Poison Center warned yesterday that the packaging and label of a new form of Children's Tylenol might confuse parents and lead them to accidentally give their youngsters a double dose, risking liver damage if the mistake is repeated over time. At issue in the warning is the 80-milligram form of Children's Tylenol Meltaways. The flavored, chewable tablets, intended for children ages 2 to 6, come in "blister packs" - cardboard sheets holding tablets sealed in plastic. Poison Center officials said that while some of the blister packs contain one tablet correctly labeled 80 mg, others - also labeled 80 mg - contain two 80 mg tablets, or a total of 160 mg. The two-tablet packs were intended as a convenience to parents who might be instructed to give their children 160 mg. But Poison Center officials thought the labeling was "slightly confusing."

The problem with dark green vegetables like broccoli and Swiss chard is that they're so nutritious so much so, you can't believe how delicious they can be. Even their family name, Cruciferae, sounds daunting, as if they could help prevent diseases.
