Acetaminophen use during pregnancy increases risk of ADHD

 

In a large scale Danish or cohort study involving 64322 children, the result shows that  women who take acetaminophen (paracetamol) during pregnancy are more likely to have a child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The drug is also associated with a higher risk of having children who exhibit other behavioral disorders.

Could that explain the higher incidences of ADHD and other behavioral issues in our kids?

Acetaminophen is often used in pain management like lower back pain or menstrual pain but it only blocks the feelings of pain and reduces fever. It has no significant anti-inflammatory action or anti-viral actions. Use for fever also increases incidence of asthma and allergies.

By now, many of you already know that fever should not be suppressed but rather can be treated successfully  with my herbal blends. This way you not only modulate the temperature but also enhances your child’s immunity in the long term.

Acetaminophen stresses the liver reduces the liver’s store of the antioxidant glutathione. This can reduce your protection against liver disease, dementia and cancer.

My mum nearly died from intestinal bleeding as a result of continuous use of the drug for her joint pain. Think twice before using it. There are safer alternatives.
