FDA fails to reduce accessibility of paracetamol despite 450 deaths/ year

It’s just Tylenol, right? Give it to your child to lower a fever, right? (Despite the fact that antipyretic therapy–lowering fever-has NEVER been studied as either safe OR effective!) Try to figure this one out– L-tryptophan, a very effective treatment for depression that was heavily used until 1989 when 37 deaths occurred due to contaminated shipments (95% of which came from one single out of the US company…), was banned by the FDA and still is not available. If my math is correct, since that time, 5,850 deaths have occurred due to UNCONTAMINATED paracetamol. Can you say “bias?”
