Breaking News on Dangers of Daily Aspirin!

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force says taking a daily aspirin may be too dangerous for people over 60. Older people have a greater risk of dying or severe side effects from bleeding in the stomach and brain caused by the aspirin than having a heart attack or stroke. Daily aspirin is not recommended for anyone 80 years or older.

Ask your doctor if aspirin is recommended for you under the new guidelines.
