Take Aspirin or Not?

The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force recommends that you take 81 mg aspirin daily if you are in your 50’s or 60’s, you have at least a 10% risk of having a heart attack over the next decade, and you have no increased risk for bleeding in the stomach or brain.  You might also get some protection from colon cancer as well.  Personally, I would rather take nattokinase and/or ultra pure fish oils, a more natural approach.

See the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force Report on low-dose aspirin, Sept, 2015
