Dr West is concerned that our article does not answer the real question of how significant a risk vinyl miniblinds pose to children. Our goal was only to make this assessment for children in North Carolina during the period studied. We leave it to others to calculate overall risk. In the absence of data on the frequency and time scale for deterioration of these blinds and without the benefit of a control population in our study, such an assessment would be difficult.
