Daily aspirin use may harm healthy older people

In a recent study, researchers found that healthy older people may not benefit from taking aspirin every day.

They showed that taking low-dose aspirin daily could not help increase lifespan or prevent a first heart attack or stroke in healthy older people.

Heart healthy and stroke are the leading causes of disability and death in older people in the U.S.

Previous research has shown that these diseases are caused by blood clots that form in the blood vessels to the brain and the heart.

Although aspirin can help prevent a blood clot from forming and prevent a second heart attack or stroke, it was unknown if it can benefit everyone.

In the current study, the team focused on the effects of daily aspirin intake on healthy older adults.

They tested 19,000 healthy older adults. These people were asked to take aspirin or an inactive pill, or placebo.

Most of the adults were 70 and older, and they did not have high risks of heart disease and stroke.

The researchers found that both groups reported similar rates of health conditions and deaths.

The daily low-dose aspirin did not reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, dementia or disability.

Moreover, people who took aspirin every day showed a higher risk of bleeding, which has been known as a side effect of aspirin use.

The finding suggests that daily aspirin cannot benefit everyone.

For healthy older people, daily aspirin use does not protect them from a heart attack, stroke and other health problems and may even bring health risks.

The team suggests that for people who’ve had a heart attack or stroke, aspirin may help prevent a second one because it can people avoid further blood clots.

Aspirin may also benefit older people who have a high risk of heart disease and stroke.

The researchers suggest that the new finding helps clarify the role of aspirin in disease prevention for older people.

The new heart health guidelines from the American Heart Association suggests that people should avoid daily aspirin unless doctors prescribe it.

To prevent heart disease and stroke, healthy older people can use healthy lifestyle habits. This includes no smoking, eating a healthy diet, sleeping well at night, and taking exercise regularly.

People also can manage their health conditions to avoid heart disease and strokes, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and obesity.
