SAFETY ALERT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT Prayerfully you will find this as alarming as I did and that is High Powered Magnets are a big risk to our toddlers and young children. Increasingly children are swallowing these magnets and several months ago I brought this alert to your attention. When two or more magnets are swallowed they attract to each other internally. In many of these instances surgery is required. Jason Higgins was involved with X rays while in the military and we had a big discussion about this and the damage these magnets can do in the stomach and intestines. My limited research also shows that these multiple pieces may in many cases appear as a single object. Medical symptoms to be on the watch for are abdominal pains, nausea and vomiting. You know they can be very additive to play with but they are not toys they are very powerful. By the way Jason Higgins is the Executive Director of the Inspirational Country Music Association celebrating 20 years in October of this year. Power Source Magazine is the fastest growing industry magazine in the world. Dr. Gene Higgins has been a dear friend of Chaplain Oscar for close to 15 years now and I want to particularly thank them both for opening a door for Chap Oscar to bring more timely alerts to their various Members, Readers and Listener's of their Syndicated Radio Network Power Source Rich Miller Host/Program Director always does a fine job and he has a powerful voice that can melt butter!
