to protect against heart disease
Aspirin: Not such a benign friend
We’re encouraged to take an aspirin a day as part of a general good health regime. Nearly 40 per cent of us take the drug just to help protect us against heart disease and stroke.
But a study prepared by researchers at ‘What Doctors Don’t Tell You’, the health journal for consumers, has discovered that the drug may be a major cause of stroke among the elderly.
It may increase the risk of stroke seven times, especially in the elderly who are taking the drug as a ‘just-in-case’ in growing numbers.
In addition, the drug’s well-known side effect of causing gastro-intestinal (GI) bleeding may be far more serious than everyone thought. Researchers at ‘What Doctors Don’t Tell You’ have discovered that it may be killing an additional 100,000 people worldwide every year.
People taking aspirin believed it was so harmless that they never bothered telling doctors they were taking it. So, when they suffered an adverse reaction – or even died from the reaction – aspirin was never suspected as being the culprit.
Before you take another aspirin, you must read this report from ‘What Doctors Don’t Tell You’, the health journal that uncovers the real dangers of modern medicine. It’s ready to download right now, so click here to get your copy.
The true dangers of aspirin have been known about for years – if only doctors had bothered looking. A study that was published 12 years ago discovered that aspirin was responsible for many of the patients being in a hospital bed. In fact, people who took the drug every day were four times more likely to end up in hospital with some gastric problem.
As with all drugs, it’s getting the ratio right between risk and benefit. Aspirin has flourished because its risks always seemed small. But the discoveries from the research team at ‘What Doctors Don’t Tell You’ suggest we may have been misled.
