This makes it lose its medical functions like pain-relieving, controlling our feverish condition and headache, boiling it lose the functions and becomes hazardous to our health.

Many medical organizations have warned against the use of drugs in cooking because of its dangerous effect. Potassium and acetaminophen produce toxic chemicals when cooked and these chemicals can damage our liver and kidneys, causing us serious life-threatening health problems.

Having damaged kidneys disrupt normal bodily functions and leads to death. This because the damaged kidney stops excreting waste making these wastes store in your body. This cause can cause increased glucose in your blood which leads to diabetes. This can also lead to increase amino acids in the body which leads to protein digestion.
