Avoid common painkillers and cold remedies that destroy your liver and more

Thursday, January 02, 2014 by: Paul Fassa

(NaturalNews) Do you know what over-the-counter pharmaceuticals Tylenol, Excedrin, NyQuil, Theraflu and prescription painkillers Vicoden and Percocet have in common? They all contain an ingredient that has forced almost 80,000 ER (emergency room) visits, 26,000 hospitalizations and around 500 deaths annually.

That ingredient is acetaminophen. Ironically, concern over liver damage has influenced some physicians to change patients over to more addictive OxyContin to avoid liver damage from long term use of prescribed painkillers that have acetaminophen as partial ingredients.

Most overdose cases have been accidental, often by using more than one pharmaceutical containing acetaminophen at the same time. Some have been intentionally self-destructive, as in suicidal.

But the fact remains that acetaminophen is a liver toxin. Those with liver conditions, such as hepatitis or fatty liver, should avoid acetaminophen products completely.
