Why Seniors Should NEVER Take Aspirin
Dear Turapür Today Reader,
The tiny miracle pill that’s supposed to keep your heart healthy way past its prime.
And if you’ve ever had heart troubles, your doc has probably told to you take it for the rest of your life.
But it looks like if you’re 75 or older, there’s a good reason you might want to ditch aspirin for good.
You see, U.K. researchers have just found that taking aspirin can send your chances of bleeding to death through the roof.
In a recent study, scientists looked at the bleeding risk data for over 3,100 aspirin users who had previously suffered a heart attack or stroke.
After crunching the numbers, they found that folks under the age of 65 had a relatively low risk of suffering from fatal bleeding.
However, folks 75 and older weren’t so lucky.
Their chances of deadly bleeding were TRIPLE that of their younger counterparts.
And the bad news just gets worse…
The risk for folks 85 or older shot up FIVE TIMES.
Bleeding has always been a known side effect of aspirin use, but this is the first time researchers have linked the increased risk with age.
The researchers’ report that taking a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) with aspirin could help reduce the risk of bleeding in all folks.
But PPIs are linked to everything from heart attacks to dementia.
So adding them to your heart treatment plan isn’t much of a solution for anyone trying to stay healthy well into their golden years.
Experts warn that aspirin is a deadly drug and shouldn’t be used without caution, especially if you’re over the age of 75.
If you’re currently taking aspirin, you should talk to your doctor about getting off of it, regardless of your age.
