Do you ever pay attention to aspirin and tylenol commercials? Doctor prescribed so it is okay to take an aspirin a day. People enjoying their life once again dancing around, running, doing sports again, all because of these great pain killers. Like this magic dust that covers our insides with goodness and joy so we can live once again!

I think it is misleading the younger generation and they are taking them like candy because of false beliefs that they are good for you, they won’t harm you or if one is good, two, three, or four must be even better. They mix them with other pills, this new red bull craze or alcohol. How else can we spell disaster?

We need to follow those commercials with the side effects, liver failure, addictions and death statistics that these pills lead to. Get the facts! Please read these facts:

Benzocaine use may cause a rare, but serious condition where the amount of oxygen that can be carried through the blood stream is greatly reduced.
