Thinking about popping a Nurofen? Think again.
I have always said that Non-Steriodal Anti-Inflammatories (or NSAIDs for short) are just bad for you. Somehow it just doesn’t seem to get through. As though the relentless affects of marketing somehow made the facts not real. I tell patients that there is a reasonable risk of dying from NSAIDs and it does happen often enough to be concerned, yet if there is an ad on TV saying its ok then the stats don’t matter.
Well here is yet another bunch of stats proving how bad these things are. To be able to affect the hormal system so strongly and in such a short period of time is just scary. So please, please be scared. Use your ice pack instead. Better still, keep your chiro appointments so you don’t need either!!
