In brief: Question?
I'm not sure what the question is - if you are asking if tylenol (acetaminophen) can damage the liver, then yes.
The fda recently decreased the maximum dose for tylenol (acetaminophen) to 3, 000 mg per 24 hours in healthy adults. For kids or those with medical problems, the dose is even less. Overdosing on the active ingredient in tylenol (acetaminophen) is one of the worst deaths i've ever seen.
