People Take Too Much Tylenol!
ProPublica created this visually stunning image to accompany their compelling look into the huge problem the American public has with taking Acetaminophen, aka Tylenol.
In the past 10 years, 1,500 Americans have died after taking too much acetaminophen, which has fooled us into believing it’s one of the safest drugs out there.
One of the most important point the article focuses on is the availability of the drug, and the amount in which is distributed. Compared to the scant 10 grams from Germany or Mexico, it’s very telling when Americans can access 500 grams in just a single pill, at any time.
