At least a dozen states have adopted laws encouraging supported decision-making, which — unlike guardianship — allows people with disabilities to make decisions for themselves.

🚩 A new study out of John Hopkins University, funded by the NIH was just released citing that the use of Acetaminophen (Tylenol) during pregnancy increases the risk of ADHD and Autism in children.

Researchers collected cord blood from 996 births and measured the level of Tylenol and two of the byproducts in it. By the time the babies were 8-9 years old, the babies with the highest levels of Tylenol had a:
⚠️ 2.86 times the risk of ADHD
⚠️ 3.62 times the risk of Autism

"The authors conclude that their results support earlier studies linking acetaminophen exposure in the womb with ADHD and ASD and underscore the need for additional research. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration urges careful consideration before using any pain-relieving medication during pregnancy."

Things to be aware of:
Tylenol depletes glutathione which is the body’s biggest antioxidant and also depletes your sulfur stores.

NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) is the "antidote" to Tylenol. NAC is used for Tylenol over-doses and may also help kids with low glutathione due to Tylenol exposure.

*This is not the first study showing a correlation between acetaminophen and Autism. TACA's private Facebook Group for parents has a file on ear infections that has more in-depth information on reasons to avoid Tylenol:
