Daily aspirin intake is harmful to the health

aspirinAfter a new study, the British experts claim that healthy people who regularly take aspirin to prevent heart attack, can bring their health more harm than benefit.
Scientists have found that the risk of bleeding when taking aspirin daily for a long-term is such that its use as a preventive measure on a regular basis should be regarded as undesirable.
Today, there is a discussion between experts on the theme of the aspirin use in patients with vascular problems.
The results of this study added new evidence to the oldest scientific debate about whether the potential risk associated with aspirin exceed the benefits resulting from reducing the risk of blood clots while its admission. Research was conducted by professor Gerry Fowkes from the Center for the Prevention of vascular disease in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The results were presented at the Congress of the European Cardiology Community in Barcelona. The study involved 3350 men and women aged 50 to 75 years. All of them were given either 100 mg of aspirin per day, or placebo. The patients have been under control over 8 years. During this time, no differences in the incidence of heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular diseases between two groups were observed. However, copious bleeding occurred in 2% of patients from the group receiving aspirin and only 1,2% of the placebo group.
