HC Deb 23 January 1989 vol 145 c413W
Mr. Hayes

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will refer to the Committee on Safety of Medicines the matter of risks to vegetarians of the use of paracetamol.

Mr. Mellor

We have no evidence to suggest that vegetarians using paracetamol suffer any increased risks provided that they eat a well-balanced diet. It is important that they and other paracetamol users follow the dosage instructions set out on the label.
