Health Message - Don't Take Panadol...

My friend was working in a hospital as an IT engineer, as the hospital
is planning to set up a database of its patient. And he knows some of the
doctor quite well. The doctors used to tell him that whenever they have
a headache, they are not willing to take PANADOL(PARACETMOL). In fact,
they will turn to Chinese Herbal Medicine or find other alternatives. This
is because Panadol is toxic to the body, and it harms the liver. According
to the doctor, Panadol will reside in the body for at least 5 years.
And according to the doctor, there used to be an incident where an air
stewardess consumes a lot of panadol during her menstrual as she needs
to stand all the time. She's now in her early 30's, and she needs to
undergo kidney dialysis every month.
As said by the doctor that whenever we have a headache, that's because
it is due to the electron/Ion imbalance in the brain. As an Alternative
solution to cope with this matter, they suggested that we buy 1 or 2 cans
of isotonic drink (eg.100PLUS), and mix it with drinking water according to
a ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 (simply, it means one cup 100 plus, one cup water or
cups water).
Me and my husband have tried this on several occasions, and it seems to
work well. Another method will be to submerge your feet in a basin of warm
water so that it bring the blood pressure down from your throbbing head. As
Panadol is a pain killer, the more Panadol you take, the lesser would be
your threshold for pain (your endurance level for pain).
We all will fall ill as we aged, for woman, we would need to go through
childbirth. Imagine that we had spent our entire life popping quite a
substantial amount of Panadol ( Pain Killer ) when you need to have a
surgery or operation, you will need a much more amount of general
anesthetic to numb your surgical pain than the average person who seldom or
rarely takes Panadol.
If you have a very high intake of Panadol throughout your life
(Migraine, Menstrual cramps) it is very likely that normal general
anesthetic will have no effects on you as your body is pumped full with
panadol and your body is so used to pain killer that you would need a
much stronger pain killer, morphine????
The thought is scary enough to turn me to Chinese Herbal Medicine or
other healthier alternative.
Value your health, value your life, THINK b4 you easily pop that
familiar pill into your mouth again.
Please send this to people you care......
