Warning on aspirin risk
ASPIRIN does not prevent diseases associated with old age and taking it daily could actually be doing more harm than good, the largest study to investigate the trend has found.
A trial of more than 19,000 participants in Australia and the US, including 1365 from South Australia, has shed new light on aspirin’s benefits.
The study found an aspirin a day did not prolong lives or significantly reduce the risk of a first heart attack or stroke. REPORT PAGE 7
