Causes of Alzheimer's disease Tylenol (acetaminophen)

Phenacetin was implicated as a causative factor in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in 1971. Although the chief metabolite, paracetamol, was earlier identified as responsible for its analgesic and antipyretic properties, a link with senile plaque formation does not appear to have been previously suspected. In common with paracetamol, so-called recreational drugs (RDs) likewise stimulate free radical activity, and might therefore pose a similar danger in terms of causing AD later in life. The case for regarding the brain as an even more delicate and vulnerable structure than currently believed, at risk especially from substances untested in man but of proven neurotoxicity in rodents and non-human primates, needs to be taken more seriously than at present.

The author of this study concludes that the Alzheimer's pandemic is largely man-made.

That is alarming. I wonder what other so called "safe and harmless" drugs are causing disease?

Secret documents reveal that government-funded experts were warned nearly 30 years ago that tranquillisers that were later prescribed to millions of people could cause brain damage.

Do you mean experts in the FDA?

The Medical Research Council (MRC) agreed in 1982 that there should be large-scale studies to examine the long-term impact of benzodiazepines after research by a leading psychiatrist showed brain shrinkage in some patients similar to the effects of long-term alcohol abuse.

The Medical Research Council is in the UK.

I think this is more complex that we know, what with most of the population consuming alcohol, drinking water with who knows what chemical combinations in it, and popping drugs too - it's toxicity at every turn.

I think that any drug which acts on the brain has the potential to damage it.

The thing is to know of the potential damage of a commonly used drug and not to further research it and to keep quiet about it that is wrong.

So what do you think about supplements that claim to enhance brain function? I once took supplements named "Smart" and noticed an increase in brain function.

Best stick to nutrients that the body will use to aid optimum function and repair. All things in moderation.

The drugs that are in the marketplace have not been tested on people for a sufficiently long period of time and the problems are arising with long term usage.

No I don't think this is the case with paracetamol as it is a generic and you can buy 16 500mg tablets for £0.36.

I think that the backlash towards the government bodies supposed to oversee the safety of medicines would be so great not to mention the lawsuits if the Alzheimer's pandemic was proven to be caused by acetaminophen, bear in mind that the link between Alzheimer's and acetaminophen was established in 1971.

AH BUT IT WAS PATENTED IN THE PAST.

NOW THEY CAN BASH AND CLAIM TO BE GOOD GUYS.
