[Alert!] This Pain Pill is KILLING Seniors
It’s one of the most popular over-the-counter drugs.
It’s probably your medicine cabinet right now. And you don’t think twice about popping a pill or two whenever you feel the need.
And why would you? You’ve mainstream medicine tells you it’s generally safe.
But this allegedly “harmless” drug sends thousands of people to the hospital every year – including seniors – and KILLS hundreds more.
Keep reading to learn about the critical warning you won’t hear anywhere else.
Every year, this drug:
- Lands about 26,000 people in the hospital
- Sends 56,000 people to the emergency room
- Is responsible for 100,000 calls to poison control centers
- And KILLS about 450 people.
With numbers like those, you might think I’m talking about major prescription drugs.
I’m talking about Tylenol… the same pain-reliever you turn to when you’re suffering from a headache, have spiked a fever, or are sore from a workout.
But in the process of covering up your pain, acetaminophen can DESTROY your liver, causing liver damage, acute liver failure, and in the worst-case scenarios, death.
All of these adverse events can happen even if you’re taking the recommended doses.
And if you drink more than three alcoholic drinks per day or taking other medications your risks are even HIGHER.
The main problem here is that Tylenol is so common that no one thinks twice about popping two, or three, or even four pills.
And if your pain comes back in just a few hours, it doesn’t seem like a big deal to pop a few more.
But every time you swallow acetaminophen, your liver could take a hit—which is why acetaminophen causes more cases of acute liver failure than all other medicines COMBINED.
The bottom line here is that no matter how common a drug might be… no matter how many people take it every single day… no matter how many times YOU’VE taken the drug… Tylenol is still just that… a drug.
And that means there are risks. The more you’re aware of them, the better decisions you can make for your health.
