Could it have anything to do with the fillers commonly used in these tablets?

My son is a biochemistry major and told me that tylenol contains benzene rings. Not a great thing for us to injest. However, from the commercials they tout how gentle it is. I think this information has been out there but the general public isn’t being given all the information that would allow us to make better choices.
