ABSTRACT
The article reports that increased asthma risk has been found in teenagers who take acetaminophen drugs. It references a study published in the January 15, 2011 issue of the "American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine" which investigated the association between asthma and acetaminophen use. Data collected from 50 countries confirms that acetaminophen use contributes to systemic inflammation that can suppress a person's immune response to allergic infections like rhinovirus.
