Is Tylenol suppressing your childs immune system??

Glutathione and Acetaminophen

“When your child gets a fever, he produces more white blood cells. These white blood cells are part of his immune system and they kill off the virus or bacteria that is making him sick. BMC Pediatrics say that fever increases the production of interferon, which has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. So if you suppress a fever with medication, you are actually limiting your child’s ability to fight the infection…In animal experiments, if sick animals are allowed to have a fever, they have an increased survival rate compared with animals who had their fever suppressed, so I always welcomed my children’s (rare) fevers as a sign their immune system was working correctly.”
