Acetaminophen (Tylenol) effect on cognitive processes

It looks like some early studies are showing the pain/fever reducing drug Tylenol may also have subtle but measurable effects on our mental state. It's interesting how physical and mental pain may share some of the same biological underpinnings, and also that we are still finding new discoveries abo...

Re: Question about dementia

Thanks for the information Micro!

Seems like a nice opportunity to integrate a more rigorous practice with one's everyday life. I have also read some of Bhante V's works and he makes some interesting points.
