NEVER Take Aspirin Again! Here’s Why…
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
If you’ve ever had heart troubles, your doc has probably told you to take aspirin for the rest of your life.
We’ve been promised it’s a way to ward off heart attacks and keep our tickers in tip-top shape.
But as it turns out, that daily aspirin could end up killing you.
U.K. researchers have just found that taking aspirin can send your chances of bleeding to death through the roof.
And the risk only gets worse with age.
It’s never been a secret that aspirin can increase your risk of bleeding, but it wasn’t until this recent Oxford University research was done that its true dangers were known.
For the study, scientists looked at the data for over 3,100 aspirin users who had previously suffered a heart attack or stroke.
And for folks 75 and older, the results were horrifying.
Their chances of deadly bleeding were TRIPLE those of younger heart patients.
And the bad news doesn’t end there…
The risk for folks 85 or older shot up FIVE TIMES.
This study confirms what many health experts have long suspected — aspirin-caused bleeding risks increase with age.
The researchers’ report that taking a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) like Nexium or Prilosec with aspirin could help reduce the risk of bleeding in all folks.
But PPIs are linked to everything from heart attacks to dementia.
That’s a little like trying to put out a fire with gasoline.
Experts warn that aspirin can be a deadly drug and should be used with caution, especially if you’re over the age of 75.
If you’re currently taking aspirin, you should talk to your doctor about getting off of it, regardless of your age.
It might just save your life.
