An Aspirin a Day Won’t Keep Heart Attacks Away After All

After several decades of encouraging middle-aged men and women to take an Aspirin a day new guidelines just released do a u-turn on this advice.

The new guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association released new guidelines on Sunday recommending that:

Aspirin rarely be used to help prevent heart attacks and stroke in people without known cardiovascular disease. The authors cite recent research suggesting the bleeding risks associated with aspirin may outweigh the benefits. “Clinicians should be very selective in prescribing aspirin for people without known cardiovascular disease,” [source]

“The science has evolved,” said Dr. Roger Blumenthal who is an American Heart Association volunteer expert and member of the guidelines writing committee.

It “should rarely be used” as a preventive action, after a couple of recent medical studies found that the greater risks of gastrointestinal distress and bleeding associated with aspirin outweigh the benefits of taking it to prevent cardiovascular events.

‘What may save you today, might just kill you tomorrow’

Changes in Guidelines for common Doctor recommendations is not an unusual event, what may save you today, might just kill you tomorrow. Which if you are a rational human being is to be expected, because as Dr. Roger Blumenthal points out, Science evolves. Well, unless of course, we are talking about Vaccines, then the science does not evolve, there is no need for debate – the facts are in!
