American Academy of Pediatrics Warns Against Using Fireworks

TUESDAY, July 3, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has issued a warning about fireworks safety.

Fireworks can cause serious burns, blindness, scars, and death. Even sparklers can cause serious burns to users and bystanders, the AAP says, which is why the organization recommends prohibiting the public sale of all fireworks.

The AAP encourages families to attend community fireworks displays run by professionals, rather than using fireworks at home.
