Warning: Acetaminophen (e.g. Tylenol, Paracetamol) is associated with asthma and eczema in children.

Our most potent antioxidant and protector against damage in both the liver and the brain is glutathione. One of the most commonly used medications to relieve pain and fever is acetaminophen (Tylenol, Paracetamol), also suppresses the production of glutathione. Why is this so important?

In an interesting article by the medical journal Lancet entitled "Association Between Paracetamol Use in Infancy and Childhood, and Risk of Asthma, Rhinoconjunctivitis, and Eczema in Children Aged 6-7 Years: Analysis From Phase Three of the ISAAC Programme", they described the risks of giving children acetaminophen includes increased incidence of asthma and eczema. "Use of paracetamol was similarly associated with the risk of severe asthma symptoms, with population-attributable risks between 22% and 38%. Paracetamol use, both in the first year of life and in children aged 6-7 years, was also associated with an increased risk of symptoms of rhinoconjunctivitis and eczema."

According to this article, a pregnant woman taking acetaminophen puts the unborn fetus at risk of developing asthma.
