One of the biggest cons in modern medicine was just exposed for the fraud that it is.
A drug that’s given to millions for “heart protection” … every day … likely isn’t doing a thing for most of them.
In fact, it’s often doing the opposite. It’s HURTING many. And potentially even KILLING some.
So mainstream medicine will now take quick action to get these people OFF the meds and ON to the real treatments they need, right?
See, we’ve been down this road before. Studies have proven that this common med comes with a truckload of bad news for MANY people. And yet none of those past reports have led to any significant change.
So today, let me give you safe passage out of this madhouse. I’ve got the truth about ASPIRIN. Along with a much better way to reap the promised heart benefits, but without the risks.
How aspirin therapy may be HURTING millions
This is old news to longtime Healthier Talk readers, of course. And not exactly shocking to anyone who’s seen the science over the years.
But the new study confirms it, yet again. Researchers concluded that healthy people with low heart risk probably shouldn’t be taking daily aspirin.
The analysis of 67 studies in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology finds that low-dose aspirin therapy could cut your risk of major cardiovascular events such as heart attack or stroke by 17 percent.
Sounds good, except the SAME study finds it also comes with two MUCH bigger risks. Low-dose daily aspirin can also raise your chances of…
- gastrointestinal bleeding by 47 percent
- bleeding in the skull by 34 percent
In other words, you could be chasing down a small reward but getting some really BIG risks in the bargain. Which means that potential heart benefit doesn’t sound quite so impressive anymore.
Make the switch for TRUE heart protection
This shouldn’t be too big a shock. Because, as I said, other studies have reached much the same conclusion.
And – on paper, anyway – both the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association say people SHOULDN’T take daily aspirin unless they’ve already had a heart attack, stroke, or open-heart surgery.
Yet, in reality, many doctors recommend a daily dose of aspirin to all their patients over a certain age. Plus, TV “experts” still urge people to take it. And potentially millions of folks are on the drug who shouldn’t be.
Some were told by a doctor to take the aspirin. Others just swallow a daily pill because they heard it was a good idea.
It’s NOT. But if you’re on it right now, don’t quit cold turkey. Studies show that suddenly stopping aspirin therapy could bring its own risks.
Instead, work with your doctor on a plan to wean you off the drug. And then, talk about better and safer options for true heart protection. Some proven ones to consider are fish oil, coenzyme Q10, magnesium, and ginkgo biloba.
