27. Just be aware that not all doctors are that educated about this stuff
And by that I mean acetaminophen and its effects. Many if not most doctors rely on pharmaceutical salespeople to give them the latest on drug information. Most M.D.'s, in my experience, sneer when someone suggests that acetaminophen in "normal" doses may be toxic, but in fact, it may well be,depending upon the person and the circumstances.

I'm a toxicologist, which isn't to say I know more than a medical doctor (I'm just the academic type), but it's my business to learn this stuff about liver and kidney toxins.

So my advice would be to do your own research so you feel good about whatever you decide.

Unless you are a child or teenager with a fever, or an adult with bleeding ulcers, I don't see where going with aspirin can be a negative alternative to acetaminophen. No doubt someone would challenge me on this, but I think I could hold my own.

In the meantime, cheers!
