Yes and have since 2007 after I had to have a pacemaker. Dr. recommended.

 

Still in 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have mastectomy.

 

So much for that theory.

Yes, except for some conditions such as Gerds. We're talking 'baby aspirin'. From your article:

 

"...Aspirin, when large doses (8 to 12 pills a day) are taken....".

 

No one condones taking this kind of dosage.

Is it safe to take aspirin daily? I know it helps to overcome many health issues but it has many other side effects.
One of my friends who had been taking aspirin daily suffers from hearing loss. He had consulted a licensed audiologist in Toronto and got hearing aids. The audiologist advised him to stop taking aspirin daily as it is the cause of his hearing loss.

I take a baby aspirin. Doc says he has everyone over 60, even in good health, as a preventative. And yes, you have to be sure you can tolerate the aspirin. I know, it's controversial and not all docs will recommend aspirin if you otherwise, don't have risks for heart attack or stroke.

@ASTRAEA

 

I’m sorry I probably didn’t make myself clear in my post. Even though I initiated the baby aspirin once my doctor learned about it he approved. He knows my health pretty well and he thinks it’s a good idea for me to be taking.

 

I also read in an article about the health benefits of drinking two glasses of red wine every day. Probably read that in an AARP publication too. It seems the antioxidants in red wine have heart healthy benefits. I started that prescription the day I retired. I haven’t told my doctor about it and I don’t think I will.

@ReTiReD51 - Wouldn't it be better to ask your doctor what test(s) would indicate whether you have a problem/impending problem with your vascular system, and then see if you need aspirin at all? I'd be leary of reading any one-size-fits-all health article, and without being tested personally, start medicating myself .. then depend on a non-response from a doctor, to keep doing it.

I started taking an 81mg baby aspirin because of an article I had read about the benefits for your vascular system. Probably in an AARP publication. I’ve told my doctor and he’s never said to stop taking it so I’ve been taking one a day for about 5 years. I do understand there is a down side, the internal bleeding, but so far I have had no problems.
