Those of you who have taking the time to read the link I posted before this article, I appreciate if you can bring corresponding feedback to this topic as I explain the detrimental effects of the deadliest drug of the world. Let’s go!
Tylenol is the leading cause of acute liver failure in the United States, and the drug in some cases led to fatalities. The active ingredient in Tylenol is acetaminophen and accounts for more than 100,000 calls to poison centers, roughly 60,000 emergency-room visits and hundreds of deaths each year. Tylenol belongs to a class of drugs called centrally acting analgesics and antipyretic agents.
An analgesic relieves pain.
An antipyretic reduces fevers.
The drug controls fever by blocking the formation and release of a fatty acid called prostaglandin E that has the ability to regulate body temperature. Anyone that suffers from fevers should know that the body increases the temperature in the hypothalamus as the proper biological response to rid of toxicity.
These medicines are available over-the-counter, a common misconception is that they are not dangerous. For some people, even going slightly over the recommended amount can cause acute liver failure, a condition that can have deadly consequences. After someone takes Tylenol, the drug is primarily metabolized (processed) in the liver. When too much acetaminophen builds up in the liver, the pathways to eliminate these compounds can overload. In small amounts this compound can be detoxified and excreted. But in large amounts it overwhelms the detoxification system and the compound begins killing liver tissue.
People who drink alcohol in combination with Tylenol or other acetaminophen products are at even greater risk for liver damage that may lead to acute liver failure and death. For example, people who take two extra-strength Tylenol (at 500 mg each) four times a day are already at the 4,000mg maximum recommended dose. If they take any other drugs with acetaminophen in them like Theraflu, they risk an overdose. Remember when I taught about detoxification and it starts in the liver, well the kidneys are next. The kidneys filters 200 quarts of blood everyday to filter only 2 quarts of waste products. Most Kidney dialysis patients are there today because of damage done by taking Tylenol.
For women who are pregnant, toxic levels of NAPQI (a passage through second vessel of the liver after overburden of toxins) can also pass through the placenta. After 14 weeks, the baby’s liver is susceptible to the toxin, and it may cause fetal death if not treated immediately.
Studies have shown regarding possible ways that acetaminophen might contribute to the severity or prevalence of asthma. First is the possibility that taking acetaminophen increases airway inflammation in people with asthma or a predisposition to asthma contributing to the severity and frequency of symptoms. Second is the possibility that those exposed to acetaminophen in utero or in the first year of life might be more likely to develop asthma later in childhood. Therefore, I have concluded that the metabolism of acetaminophen provides a biologically plausible explanation for causation: depletion in airway mucosal glutathione that could contribute to vulnerability to oxidant stress.
When acetaminphen is included with a poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation all deplete your glutathione.This leaves you susceptible to unrestrained cell disintegration from oxidative stress, free radicals, infections and cancer. And your liver gets overloaded and damaged, making it unable to do its job of detoxification. This leads to further sickness and soon we are in the downward spiral of chronic illness. Glutathione is also the most critical part of your detoxification system. All the toxins stick onto glutathione, which then carries them into the bile and the stool — and out of your body.
I know this is a bountiful amount of information to ingest but it is better to know what not to do than to keep doing the same thing and unconsciously killing yourself. We assume that just because the doctor gives it to us that it is okay, even though it produces tremendous side effects, people continue to take the drug until they die. There are hundreds of medical journals and articles exposing the deadly consequences of Acetaminophen, my advice to you is to do your due diligence and research what you put in your temple!
