'Taking the drug acetaminophen (also known as paracetamol) could dramatically increase the chances of developing asthma according to a study published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. Acetaminophen is the active ingredient in Tylenol and other popular non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Around one in five families have someone living with asthma, but according to research by the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand, that figure could be greatly reduced if the everyday use of acetaminophen was stopped.'
