Deadly Tylenol

Tylenol is an anti-inflammatory drug also known as acetaminophen.  It may seem harmless, but simple little overdoses over just a few days can lead to life-threatening results.  Studies found that 37 percent of patients who did consistent small overdoses each day died compared to only 27 percent of patients that did a single large overdose.  Tylenol is the most common drug in America and the most commonly overdosed.  Other illnesses linked with acetaminophen are: blood cancer, asthma, brain damage and increased blood pressure.

Try to stay away from Tylenol and use other methods of pain relief such as krill oil that is packed with omega-3s that have anti-inflammatory properties!
