Aspirin issues

It seems that those people who take aspirin ‘just in case’ as a preventative against cardiac disease (even when they have no history of such) ought to be aware that the definite benefits of doing this may be outweighed by the higher incidence of ‘bleeds’ caused by the aspirin.

See this artlcle.

Note that those people with a HISTORY of heart disease still will probably benefit overall from the aspirin - discuss with your doctor if any concerns.
