WARNING: Never Pop Aspirin AGAIN! (Here’s Why)

Thanks to DECADES of misguided mainstream advice, millions of seniors are taking low-dose aspirin to prevent heart attack and stroke… buying up bottle after bottle in the hopes of protecting their tickers. 

You might know folks who swear by the med. Heck, you might swear by it yourself! 

But starting today, you’ve got to give it up FOR GOOD… 

Because new research has linked this popular – often SELF-PRESCRIBED – preventative practice to devastating and life-threatening brain bleeds! 

I know. With so much marketing and hype built into mainstream medicine, it can be hard to decide what to do and when to listen to your doc… after all, he’s supposed to steer you in the right direction… 

Let me break it down for you. 

 

Years ago, more people smoked, and we knew less about controlling blood pressure and high cholesterol… so it made sense for docs to recommend low-dose aspirin to prevent cardiovascular events. At the time, the benefits outweighed the risk of possible bleeds. 

But not anymore! 

If you are taking low dose aspirin to avoid a heart attack, stroke, or other cardiovascular event, STOP and talk to your doctor immediately… 

Because while the blood-thinning effects of this med MAY lower your risk… it’s PROVEN to up your risk of dangerous internal bleeding, significantly increasing the odds of a life-threatening intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). 

That’s bleeding within in the skull that can cause everything from numbness and paralysis to loss of cognition and stroke… even death… 

And eye-opening research published in JAMA Neurology recently found that low-dose aspirin was associated with an overall increased risk of ICH among people without symptomatic heart disease. 

This systematic review and meta-analysis included 134,000 patients and looked at 13 randomized clinical trials of low-dose aspirin as primary prevention… 

And compared to folks taking a placebo, investigators found that the risk for ICH was nearly 40 PERCENT higher in those taking aspirin! 

SHOCKING! 

The bottom line here is to talk with your doctor. Stopping an aspirin regimen can be just as dangerous as starting one… so make sure you don’t go it alone. 

A family history of heart disease should be considered… and if you are looking for a test that helps you and your doctor decide whether you NEED something extra for your heart, ask about a coronary calcium scan 

This test can tell you if you have a lot of plaque built up inside your arteries. 

Plus, there are a few ways to protect yourself from heart attack and stroke WITHOUT low-dose aspirin. 

You can start by: 

  • Keeping blood pressure below 130/80 mmHg, 
  • Keeping harmful LDL cholesterol below 130 mg/dL, 
  • Controlling your blood sugar, 
  • Avoiding tobacco use, and 
  • Exercising regularly.
