Interesting new research out of the nation's most widely-used drug: acetaminophen / Tylenol / Paracetamol (in the UK). Apparently it increases users' risk tolerance. Researchers did a series of experiments on people who had been given a placebo or 1000 mg of acetaminophen. In one experiment, people used a computer to inflate a virtual bubble ... uhh, balloon. The more you pump up the bubble, the more money you earn ... unless you pump it up too far and it bursts, in which case you get nothing. Undrugged people settled for reasonable profits; acetaminophen users pumped to the max, often bursting the bubble and losing it all.https://sciencealert.com/the-most-common-pain-relief-drug-in-the-world-induces-risky-behaviour-study-finds
Had I mentioned that Tylenol use spiked starting in March, leading to spot shortages and J&J's decision to press production to the max?
