Health & Fit Stomach-burning fidget spinners on EU warning list
Burning stomach? Here's when it's time to call the doctor
Your tummy's been giving you trouble and you're wondering if you have any other options than calling your doctor. The answer depends on what's causing your symptoms. It's important to consult a medical professional for chronic gastrointestinal conditions, but there are also lifestyle changes that can help.Acid refluxThis occurs when the stomach contents, including acid, flow backwards up into the chest and throat."It causes a hot, painful or burning sensation under the breast bone, that often is worse after eating or when lying down," explained Dr. Bennett E.
Fidget spinners have become a worldwide playground craze, but some of the cult toys can also cause serious injuries to children, according to a new EU report on dangerous products released on Monday.
Brussels said its product alert system had detected some light-up spinners with button batteries that can come loose and be swallowed, causing "burns to the oesophagus and intestines".
So THAT'S Why You Feel Sick After Taking Vitamins
A daily multivitamin or supplement may give your well-being an extra boost, but have you ever swallowed one and felt sick right after? Yeah, we know that feeling.Taking certain types of vitamins may cause a range of gastrointestinal issues, according to Dr. David Poppers, a gastroenterologist at New York University’s Langone Medical Center. It isn’t unheard-of to experience abdominal pain or discomfort, queasiness or diarrhea.
Other types of the popular finger spinners have central bearings that can come loose to create a choking hazard for small children, according to the European Commission, the watchdog for the 28-nation EU.
"A number of concerns have been raised due to accidents involving small children, who have either swallowed broken parts of the toy or ingested button batteries. In these cases, hospital intervention is necessary and urgent," the report said.
"Consequently, dangerous fidget spinners have been tracked down, stopped at borders or ports, or destroyed."
The EU said it had issued 2,201 dangerous product alerts in 2017. Toys were the biggest category with 29 percent, followed by motor vehicles with 20 percent and clothes with 12 percent.
China was by far the most frequent country of origin for dangerous products with 53 percent, although that figure remained stable from the previous year. European products accounted for 26 percent.
