Oh! Learn a new thing every day!
What's funny is people who claim that one of paracetamol / tylenol will shift a head-ache, but the other one won't. I have a feeling that when I checked on this (asked a friend who was a medical student, and incidentally HUGE breast-feeding advocate) that the dose in a standard tylenol was slightly higher than in a standard paracetamol, which might make a difference for some people.
Great, useful drug anyway, one of the few I'm allowed to take too - not that I've needed to very much, happily.
On the nappy thing: it might be that the stuff in it is more dangerous / volatile in production than once it's 'finished' of course, and I have a vague memory of my cousin saying the chemicals derive from those used to suck up oil spills
