The use of inhalants is a major health concern among the school-age population.

The short- and long-term effects of inhalant use are described to shed light on the health risks involved. Lesson plans are presented for students in grades K-12 on the themes of warning signs, harmful effects, and common misconceptions about household products. (JDM)
