Abstract:   (6454 Views)
Background: Regarding redundant magnitude of non-food poisoning phenomenon in Iran, it seems a simple review of related documents in different type of this poisoning, gives a precise estimation about this subject for a correct policy- making in this field. Methods: For access to qualified and scientific information, we referred to the Iranian and international electronic databases including Irandoc, Iranmedex, Integrated Library, Scopus and Sciencedirect. A systematic search by using the most sensitive and relevant keywords including toxicity (Poisoning or Toxicity or Intoxication), non (Non-Food) and suicide (Suicide or Self-harm) was done. Then the selected studies were evaluated by a standard checklist of STROBE. Finally data extraction conducted for qualified studies. Findings: In this study, among 220 found articles, 29 articles with 72024 people were evaluated. The maximum cases of intentional poisoning (86%) were in 15-24 years old age group and also maximum cases of accidental poisoning (79%) were in under 15 years old age group. A background in poisoning or mental disorders were the main and significant factors for future poisonings. Conclusion: Respecting a simple review of national documents about morbidity and mortality of non-food poisoning in Iran, we can say attempts to legalize sale and consumption of poisons and drugs and chemical materials, low use of poisons and high use of safe controlling methods, a change in attitude and an attempt to increase general knowledge in people about poisoning and producing proper educational programs by mass media are among the main actions. If they are done, it could decrease the number of poisoned cases in Iran.
