A recent Wall Street Journal story “The Danger of Daily Aspirin” began with “If you’re taking a daily aspirin for your heart, you may want to reconsider.” One study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found no benefit at all in giving aspirin to people at high risk of heart disease. Aspirin actually can cause bleeding in the stomach and brain. And that’s not the only way this OTC painkiller can kill you… because aspirin can actually cause potentially deadly blood clots. Roughly half of all people who suffer a fatal heart attack took an aspirin that day. If you really want to pop a pill for your heart, make it a fish oil capsule instead.
