Many drugs we use on a daily basis can significantly harm our health. Some of them, like acetaminophen, can destroy our liver, even if taken in the smallest amounts.A recent study examined more than 140 participants divided into 2 groups who were given either a placebo or acetaminophen. The results showed that 40% of the people in the acetaminophen group had damaged their liver in only a few days, which shows just how dangerous the drug is.
Besides damaging the subjects’ liver, the drug also damaged their kidneys. Acetaminophen is a highly dangerous drug that has more negative than positive sides, which is why it should be avoided.
Besides acetaminophen, common painkillers and analgesics can also be harmful to your liver. They do reduce pain, but do so with a host of adverse side-effects that will damage your liver and kidneys.
So, the next time you feel some kind of pain, don’t reach for the painkillers immediately – just try to relax and drink a cup of herbal tea and keep the analgesics for emergency situations only. The constant use of analgesics and painkillers also makes you an addict and reduces the effect of the drug over time.
