Acetaminophen and Leukemia


C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.


I have long said that acetaminophen is the greatest placebo ever created. I now retract that, as placebo should not create harm. Acetaminophen not only is a very poor pain reliever, it is the major cause of liver failure-far surpassing alcoholism. Now we know that it also increases the risk of lymphoid leukemia, while good old aspirin decreases risk of leukemia and some other cancers. Buffered aspirin should always be considered instead of rot liver acetaminophen. Recognize of course that even buffered aspirin can cause gastrointestinal bleeding.
