    Default Every Year 400 People Die From The Over-The-Counter Drug — Tylenol

    Dr. Robert J. Rowen
    January 3, 2014

    Every year, 400 people die from this over-the-counter drug – but you don't have to be one of them

    We've known for years that Tylenol is poisonous to your liver. And thousands of people have died by taking this drug. Yet if a vitamin or herb hurts one single soul, it makes international news. However, there's more to this story.

    As you may know, acetaminophen is a synthetic petrochemical pharmaceutical. A constant barrage of TV commercials for decades has driven the idea that this drug is the cat's meow for pain. The brainwashing is terrible. What a lot of people don't realize is that the drug makers stick acetaminophen in with other drugs in a multitude of concoctions. One of the most popular drugs in the U.S. is Vicodin. It combines acetaminophen with a mild narcotic. NyQuil is another popular acetaminophen product.

    Unfortunately, OTC or prescription pain/inflammation relievers are often the only thing that brings appreciable relief for many people. Curcumin, boswelia, etc. might work for a mild headache, but the times I've been in real pain, ibuprofen was the only thing that helped immediately. Tylenol doesn't work well for many issues because it isn't an anti-inflammatory. Not knowing this may cause people to OD on the stuff, possibly thinking they aren't taking enough.

    How many people do you know who read labels? Including directions on OTC medications?
