No Way.
Side effects of aspirin include allergy, general bleeding risk, upper gastrointestinal or stomach irritation and bleeding, and stroke-related bleeding into the brain.

 

I take Vitamin C and Vitamin B3(Niacin).
I follow the latest research by Dr. Matthias Rath, and these 2 vitamins do everything we need and more, instead of aspirin.

Thanks for your report. No, I don't take daily aspirin as preventative treatment for possible future heart and circulatory system problems.  It is my opinion that taking a known cause of stomach and intestinal bleeding, when it is not needed, would be foolish.  I believe the best behavior to stay healthy is exercise, good  nutrition, and healthy thoughts.  If I were to need a blood thinner, I would first try ground cloves which is a healthy natural blood thinner, without known side effects.  

 

Why pay the pharmaceutical-chemical companies for manmade, toxic chemicals, with bad side effects, to attack a sick body which needs healthy solutions to make it healthy again? The medical-pharmaceutical industry is about making money with toxic treatments, instead of natural cures with no toxic side effects.  It would be great if large institutions, like AARP, would champion change in the medical establishment toward good preventive health practices, instead of expensive and often harmful treatments. Surgery is sometimes helpful, but is often recommended when it is not needed. An emphasis on good health rather than profits might help to improve results.
