"Young teenagers who use acetaminophen even once a month develop asthma symptoms more than twice as often as those who never take it, a large international study has found. And frequent users also had more eczema and eye and sinus irritation."

I haven't completely read this yet (which I will). Be back later to comment.

It's a starting point, but the solid fact that kids who get a lot of colds develop asthma more often, and kids who get a lot of colds probably use pain relief medicines more often. In order for a study like this to mean anything, they are going to have to look at that, and this one did not.

The connection could be the colds and not the medicine is basically what I am saying. And we still have no asthma/tylenol study that takes this into account. why? I have no idea...

That is exactly what I was thinking.
