A customer named Vickie M. recently emailed us this letter through their account on Amazon regarding the safety warnings on the packages of Seagate Olive Leaf Throat Spray:
Hello, Is it safe to swallow this product ? I assume it is , but it does warn on the box to contact emergency center if child swallows. Thanks
This is a question we get several times a month regarding the wording on the packaging on many of our different homeopathic medicines. Below is Seagate’s response:
FDA regulations for the Drug Facts panel on medicine packaging require this statement — “Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed get medical help, or contact a poison control center right away” –or the FDA could cause us to recall the product if they see this violation of labeling rules. Even though this is a homeopathic product and perfectly safe for everyone, it is still classified as a medicine. The fact is that there is absolutely no danger of anyone swallowing this product or overdosing. We have had many cases of little children consuming entire bottles of the throat spray that they find in their homes (actually looking for it) as if it were candy or a sweet drink. There was no harm nor any danger to them. That is the whole purpose of purchasing and storing this product in your house instead of an over-the-counter chemical throat spray. Our product works and it is perfectly safe.
Besides … we do not produce any products that might be harmful to anyone.

This trumpetfish was about 1 ft. long and very friendly. He was resting on some plants in very shallow water. If you look at the upper left hand corner of the photo you can see the bow of a small boat above, which gives you an estimate that the depth was approx. 20 feet. Shallow water diving has the advantage of having lots of light and is generally where most of the colorful fish can be located. Most photos can be taken there without the need for strobe lighting. While most new divers like to be “macho” and brag to their friends about about how deep they dove, most of the colorful fish are located where there is light, plants, and food. Shallow diving also has the advantage of allowing the diver much longer time underwater because the air in the tank is consumed at a lower rate. More important, the danger of nitrogen absorption and the possibility of “the bends” from prolonged shallow dives is greatly reduced above 50 feet depths.
