The US* "Help Tubes Help" Plan.
"Get more eyes on the US* National Poison Help Hotline Number."
300+ million people in the US use toothpaste tubes once or twice a day.
Putting a Poison Help Cinch1 (C"1ph) on every tube will make
1-800-222-1222 as well known as 911.
This will save lives and health care cost.
*All 50 States, DC, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Island, Guam, American Samoa, and the Federated States of Micronesia.

Known:
1. Tubes are very good/safe/economical packages used everyday by billions, but may contain toxics.
2. US tubes carry the 1997 WARNINGs advising "Keep out of reach of children .", but provide NO WAY to, and
3. "… contact a Poison Control Center right away.", but provide NO Poison Help contact number!
4. US national Poison Help number, available since Jan 30, 2002, is still NOT printed on tubes!
5. Poison Centers provide lifesaving help in a poisoning emergency and reduce healthcare cost. According to the US Congress "For every $1 spent on poison control centers, $7 in medical costs are saved. "Sec 2 Findings (2) of PL. 106-174" (text) (pdf).
6. 92% of reported poisonings occur in the home, 74% treated at home, and most toothpaste is used at home.
7. Poison Centers handle a poison exposure every 13 seconds, updating TESS (now NPDS) database every 4-10 minutes.
8. Manufacturers can track adverse effects or exposures related to their product in this AAPCC database.
9. Poison Centers are at least three times more cost effective than child safety seats, smoke detectors, or bicycle helmets and as cost effective as childhood immunizations! (source)
Needed:
1. A reusable, useful aftermarket way to put a national Poison Help number on all tubes!
2. A reusable, useful aftermarket way to keep toxics in tubes out of reach of children!
Solution: Put a Poison Help Cinch1 (C"1ph) on every tube. Save Lives and Health Care Cost.

1. C"1ph cannot do anything about toxics in tubes, but it will help save users time, space and money.
2. With C"1, tubes can be hung high and out of reach, to protect kids/elders/pets.
3. A C"1ph like shown above can put a national Poison Help number on any tube, phone or frig handle.
4. The more you see [in stores, bathrooms and kitchens] a Poison Help number, the easier it is to remember.
5. Health insurance providers interested in cost reduction and improved saftey for their 255 million members, can help increase awareness of this valuable service by easily including one or more of the very thin national Poison Help Cinch1 tube squeezers in the envelope of any mailing. The C"1ph is a more useful mailable awareness premium, than phone stickers or frig magnets.
