Paracetamol toxicity: Over consumption of popular drug can lead to liver failure – signs

Experiments showed in certain settings the drug can damage the liver by harming vital structural connections between adjacent cells in the organ, said the British Liver Trust.

The health site added: “When these cell wall connections, known as tight junctions, are disrupted the liver tissue structure is damaged, cells are unable to function properly, and they may die.

“This type of cell damage is known to occur in liver conditions including hepatitis, cirrhosis and cancer, but until now it was not linked to paracetamol toxicity.”
