Acacetaminophenetaminophen, the best known brand being Tylenol, even though there are others. Known by many as a “super safe” drug.

This is partly due to advertising campaigns that have sought to convince us of its safety. But the truth is that it is actually one of the most lethal when compared to virtually any other pain relieving medication.

Why?

For one, because it is very easy to overdose.

And, by only consuming 25% more than the recommended dose, it can cause severe liver damage.

Hard to believe?

In the last ten years there have been 1,567 deaths by overdose.

If you use Tylenol for you or your family, use ONLY the recommended dose. Not a single pill more!
