Is Tylenol a brand we should trust? (I don’t)

Childrens Tylenol
My children are growing. We are healthier and healthier as time passes or so I hope. We have not visited the doctor in 3yrs since changing to eating organic, using non toxic household cleaners and eating as little as possible processed foods (no fake cheese America). We don’t use any prescription drugs and look to alternative medicine when possible (natural herbs).

My youngest is now 4 and eldest is 8. There are time when we still get the sniffles and spike a fever but thats no reason to visit the doctor. This usually happens after a few days of snotty noses at the kids school during the winter months. They say its the season to be merry.. but I am thinking otherwise.

So you set off to the local drug store to find something safe to give your children that will bring them ease and break that fever. If you are like me and read the ingredients you can easily spend 20-30 minutes trying to find something that has little filler ingredients in it or known toxic and dangerous chemicals. YES…THESE ARE IN YOUR CHILDRENDS COUGH MEDICINE!!

Last year after having to head to the drugstore to get something to break my sons fever, I spent over 20 minutes trying to find a product that would take my sons fever down. My first thought was Tylenol.. Why? Because we grew up on that brand. It is a brand you would think you could trust. Right? Well not in my eyes anymore.

Here are just a few of the ingredients i have found in Tylenol products that I would not ingest or give to my children due to known side effects and the fact they are not safe!

Butylparaben, propylene glycol, methylparaben, propylparaben, sodium lauryl sulfate, titanium dioxide, butylparaben, Aspartame (yeah.. I want my kids having that), castor oil (contains a known poison.. seriously) and I am sure I could find more with some reading.

So when it comes time to get some Tylenol or another brand of fever medicine. Make sure to read the ingredients and look for one with the least amount of fillers. Don’t trust a brand name because you grew up on it and your mom said they were the best. Read and educate yourself.

Our children are our most precious and I personally find it upsetting that companies put these ingredients in products we give to our children. Time for some change I say. Tylenol, Motrin, Exact.. get with it. Stop poisoning us and our children.
