According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, most poisoning deaths are due to the misuse and abuse of licit and illicit drugs and poison exposures can involve a vast array of substances and occur in many ways.  In 2014, almost 80 percent of exposures reported to poison centers involved people who swallowed a substance. However, people were also exposed through the lungs, skin, eyes, and other routes.  Additionally, 57 percent of human exposures reported to poison centers involved medications, or pharmaceuticals.  Other exposures are to consumer and household products, plants, mushrooms, pesticides, animal bites and stings, carbon monoxide, chemicals, and many other types of non-pharmaceutical substances.
