Daily Aspirin May Not Be Good For You

Daily Aspirin May Not Be Good For You

Daily aspirin may not be good for you.

Some people, especially over the age of 50, have been advised to take a daily low dose aspirin to ward off heart attacks or certain kinds of cancer, but a new study done in England shows that daily aspirin may not be a good idea for otherwise healthy people because of the dangers of bleeding in the brain and stomach.

That's because aspirin can make it harder for the blood to clot, and can cause other problems inside the body.

It's usually given to people who have a high risk of heart attack, but the researchers say healthy people should avoid daily use until more studies can be done.
