Pill popping moms give babies a headache
I've always had a theory about folks who say it's better to give than receive -- they've never gotten anything good. I bet their closets are stuffed floor to ceiling with ugly ties and cheap cologne.
But if you like to haul in gifts -- I'm talking about the expensive stuff -- any gal will tell you that nothing beats having a baby. Something about that growing bump in your belly makes people want to lavish you with big-ticket items.
There's the oak crib from Aunt Sally... the fancy jogging stroller from your sister... the debilitating disease risk from Johnson & Johnson.
What, you don't remember that one? Well, you got it -- or at least your kid did. And when you hear what I tell you next, you won't be rushing to send a thank-you note.
A massive new study has found that if you took acetaminophen, like Tylenol, during your pregnancy, you increased the chances of your kid developing ADHD by as much as 37%! And the longer you took it, the greater the risk.
Now let me be straight with you. ADHD is the most over-diagnosed condition in America, and it's used by Big Pharma to throw pills at every kid who can't sit still. But for the kids who suffer from serious ADHD, life is a nightmare full of bad grades, bullying, and worse.
And acetaminophen is no picnic for you either. Acetaminophen is like a cannonball to your liver, and has been linked to hundreds of deaths a year.
ADHD is one gift you don't want to pass on to your kid. If you're struggling with the aches and pains of pregnancy, give heating pads and ice packs a try. But do your unborn baby (and yourself) a favor of a lifetime and keep that Tylenol in the bottle where it belongs.
