(Video) Part 4: Evidence line 8+9 of 20: The mechanism makes sense

Is it even possible that a common drug such as acetaminophen could cause autism? 

Let’s look at more evidence in this case numbers 8 and 9 that acetaminophen use in susceptible babies and children can cause autism. 

If you haven’t seen the videos on the first seven lines of evidence, please go back and watch that those as well.  

This is William Parker, the scientist, with Dr. Parker Reports.

Out of the 20 lines of evidence that tells us that Tylenol causes autism in susceptible babies and children, 2 of those lines deal with the toxicology and the biochemistry of acetaminophen.  


Biochemical evidence can essentially tell us if Tylenol has the “means, motive, and opportunity” to cause autism. 


First, we know that many children with autism have metabolic factors that make Tylenol more toxic. That’s actually been known since 1999.


Second, we also know what makes Tylenol more toxic. It’s oxidative stress. 


We’ve talked about this in other videos, and you can go back into our feed and look for the topic oxidative stress to learn more. 


The things which cause oxidative stress like genetic factors and antibiotic use, are also risk factors for autism. 


Finally, we have recently uncovered another clue, this one from the 1980s. 


Kitty cats are extremely sensitive to Tylenol and there is no safe dose you can give them. 


What we found is that kitty cats and susceptible babies and children have the same metabolic factors that make Tylenol toxic. 


This provides even more evidence that Tylenol has the means, motive an opportunity to cause autism in susceptible babies and children. 


And that’s the broad strokes on lines of evidence numbers 8 and 9 out of 20 total, with Dr. Parker Reports.
