Many people come down with the flu and instantly reach for the bottle of Tylenol assuming it will help. The new study out of New Zealand says actually it doesn’t help and worse it can be very damaging. The Institute For Natural Healing reports the following.
Researchers in New Zealand randomly gave 80 adults with flu symptoms either 1,000 mg of acetaminophen (Tylenol) or a placebo for five days. They found no difference between the two groups in severity of symptoms, daily temperature, or length of sickness.
The researchers’ conclusion? There is no evidence whatsoever that Tylenol helps flu sufferers.1
But it’s not only useless… Taking too much Tylenol can cause severe liver damage, particularly when mixed with alcohol.
Some 500 people in the U.S. die from acetaminophen overdoses each year.2 Ironically, the signs of liver damage include flu like symptoms such as fever and loss of appetite.
