Do Not Use Tylenol or Nyquil! THEY KILL!
Don't use Tylenol or NyQuil. They kill! It seems that for the past 30 years, I have been preaching the same message - a message of hope and health through better nutrition.
However, I do realize that my message has been smothered for the most part by the big pharmaceutical companies. I mean, let’s be real. They pretty much own the advertising time on all of the major networks and national newscasts. They spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year convincing the American population that toxic drugs are good. I find it hard to believe that these people can even sleep at night. This past week, the news broke that Tylenol was toxic to the liver. Well, imagine that! I have been telling you that for over 20 years. Tylenol shouldn't even be on the market. 2 shots of Jack Daniels and 4 Extra Strength Tylenol and your liver is toast. You will probably need a liver transplant.
Here's what is crazy:
NyQuil contains alcohol and Tylenol. Read the label. I am not making this stuff up. The label even warns you about the serious liver damage.
What is wrong with the FDA? All they want is to regulate vitamins and take your rights away to buy vitamins. That’s because the FDA and the drug companies know that high quality nutraceuticals work. They don’t want you to use them. The drug companies realize that treating you with drugs is much more profitable than keeping you healthy.
A few years ago, 60 Minutes did a program on the revolving door of the FDA. It specifically said that many of the FDA members, after helping to get toxic drugs passed, left the FDA to go work for the very toxic drug companies they helped! Unbelievable! No wonder we have seen Washington become more and more corrupt throughout our lifetimes.
Here is a quick look at the current actions that are being presented to the FDA and further documented impact of acetaminophen on the public:
- FDA Panel urges ban on some prescription acetaminophen drugs
- FDA advisers seek lower nonprescription doses
- U.S. advisory panel called for greater restrictions on the widely-used pain reliever acetaminophen, even recommending banning some medications that contain it, in a bid to prevent potentially fatal overdoses.
- The Food and Drug Administration panel of outside experts, said the agency should take steps to curb the public's exposure to acetaminophen in both over-the-counter and prescription products that include the ingredient.
- Overdoses of acetaminophen, perhaps best known as Johnson & Johnson's Tylenol, have long been known to cause liver failure and even death.
- FDA officials are concerned current warnings are not heeded by consumers and are looking for new ways to reduce the number of overdoses.
- Acetaminophen is the leading cause of acute liver failure in the 1,600 cases seen each year in the United States, according to a 2007 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate.
- The FDA states that consumers sometimes take too much of the drug either by ingesting the wrong dose or unknowingly taking it via the growing number of products such as cough and cold medicines that contain acetaminophen.
- The advisers urged a ban on prescription painkillers that include acetaminophen, such as Vicodin and Percocet -- two drugs that combine acetaminophen with powerful opioids. FDA panelists said it should at least require a strong "black-box" warning on such combination products.
- Dr. Marie Griffin, a preventive medicine professor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and other panelists said patients were often not aware that the powerful drugs even contained acetaminophen.
- The highest dose of acetaminophen currently on the market should only be available with a doctor's prescription, the panel said, and only one concentration of children's liquid should be sold.
- Anti-inflammatory painkillers, also known as NSAIDs, which include aspirin and ibuprofen, are known to cause stomach bleeding. The FDA earlier this year called for stronger warnings for both NSAIDS and acetaminophen products to highlight the stomach and liver risks.
- Acetaminophen-containing products had overall sales of $2.6 billion in 2008, according to IMS Health. Nearly 80 percent of that is from combination products sold directly to consumers.
