In age 60 and above, it’s really the decision of the doctor and the patient together.” According to Agus, the big takeaway from the study is to not start taking aspirin in your 70s if you aren’t already on it. “This is an important study and a well-done study and it means if you haven’t...

Taking Daily Aspirin May Be Risky for Healthy Older Adults: Study
For years, taking a daily aspirin was believed to be one of the easiest ways to protect long-term health. But the bottom line on aspirin has recently gotten more complicated. Some research finds that aspirin can potentially reduce the risk of heart attacks and cancer, and some suggests that aspirin’s possible side effects, such as bleeding and ulcers, overshadow its advantages for many people. Now, a trio of new research articles are calling that classic health advice further into question. The research, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, suggests that taking a daily aspirin offers few appreciable heal...
