Say “No” to TyleNOl

Several years ago, I had heard that Tylenol was about the worse drug you can take because it actually reduces L-glutathione which is the master antioxidant in your body.   NPR has raised this issue again by asking if it makes asthma worse.  In the past some in the autism community had foresworn the use  of it and to use Ibuprofen instead.

Have you noticed that if you go to a pediatrician’s office they always prescribe ibuprofen and not acetomenophen?  Why is that?  Do they know something we don’t know?   Even if this is the case, sometimes your kid may have a high fever that ibuprofen does not address sufficiently.  The fever doesn’t come down enough or it doesn’t come down enough for a long enough time before the next dose of IB can be taken.  You are then told to alternate with acetomenophin….I wouldn’t do it!  See this pubmed article about the link between autism and asthma.

I’ve found that vitamin C is a sufficient anti-inflammatory for me.  In fact I did not need to take codeine after a root canal because the Vit C held back the inflammation.

      Ventograpy, I am having webinar fatigue, but that looks interesting. When I looked at the charts that map the rise in autism with tylenol I did not see curves that appeared to be statiscally significant, so while I’m sure there is a link, i’m not sure how strong it is.

      The 4 paths to detoxification sounds really interesting!
