Please clarify above claims that pesticide poisoning is a major factor in unintentional injuries. Looking at CDC data for 2015 Unintentional injuries, all ages for class 48 (accidental poisoning by pesticides) I found a total of 4. While that's 4 more than should have happened it does make up a major portion. Also, it might be important to note that drug and alcohol related injuries make up by far the greatest portion of unintended injuries.

Edit to previous comment (does not) should have been included.
