Yes, after 3 stints were put in my arteries, in 2007.  I  take the low dose coated aspirin every day.

HavING vascular tests, which are anything but inexpensive, as one member suggests, sounds like a marginally ok idea before starting to take low-dose aspirin (there's some risk to some common such tests) but who's going to pay for them? You could easily get into the thousands of dollars, and you can bet Midicare and the vast majority (if not all) private insurance companies aren't going to pay. It's an entirely unworkable siggestion for all but those with the resources and desire to pay on their own.

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.
