NAC -- Friend or Foe?


New member
The following article in Science Daily indicates that NAC has shown to cause pulmonary hypertension in mice, and I am wondering if this article is relevant to humans The original research was done at the University of Virginia.

Like many, I too take NAC, and have found more articles in support of it, than against it. Still it would be interesting to see if any international studies are able to demonstrate the risk of Pulmonary Hypertension in humans.

The article is dated 2007. You would think that considering how many lung patients take NAC more studies might have been warranted. There is still a lot of advice out there urging patients to take it.
