Add nasal irritant to glue to stop kids from inhaling their products

There are 150 million children who live and work on the streets of our world (for more information about street children check untilthen.org). Many of them use inhalants to dull their hunger and ease the pain of their difficult lives. The adhesives industry can add a nasal irritant to their adhesives formula which would prevent children from inhaling their products. This simple formula change would save millions of lives while not changing the efficacy of their products.

      Because a nasal irritant will work in deterring kids from inhalant abuse. Testor's airplane glue proved it works.
