According to a recent study by Harvard researchers, you may want to stop taking aspirin every day if you have not had heart disease in the past.
The study shows that aspirin may not reduce the risk of heart attack in people without a history. The researchers also found that the drug can cause other side effects such as bleeding in the digestive tract.
According to the Harvard study, 29 million people over the age of 40 take aspirin every day, even though they have not had heart disease in the past.
] Nearly seven million of them take aspirin without a doctor's recommendation.
Dr. Evelina Grayver is a cardiologist at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset. She says patients should talk with their doctors before making any changes.
"The study showed that there were people who took the drug with an increased risk of bleeding," says Grayver. "But there is also the other side of the patients who have such risk factors or have a truly proven heart disease with coronary stents that should never stop taking aspirin." You have a history of heart disease. According to doctors, healthy diet and exercise are always a good way to reduce the risk of heart attack.
