Daily intake of aspirin for over 60s no longer advised

The daily intake of aspirin to reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke should no longer be recommended in the United States for people aged 60 and over, a panel of experts warned on Tuesday, October 12.

"Daily use of aspirin can help prevent heart attacks and strokes in some, but it can also cause serious adverse effects, such as internal bleeding," said Dr. John Wong, a member of the Preventive Services Task Force of the United States, in a statement.

As for people aged 40 to 59, at-risk but without a history of cardiovascular disease, they must individually make the decision to start this treatment, after consulting their doctor, these experts add.

It is a radical change that affects millions of people because its practice is widespread in the country. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.

Since 2016, Task Force experts, whose recommendations are widely followed, have recommended aspirin for people in their 50s with an assessed risk of 10% of heart attack or stroke in the next ten years.

They also believed that 60-year-olds at risk could take this preventive treatment based on an individual decision.

But for several years, studies have questioned the American recommendations.

Aspirin thins the blood, which prevents clots and helps reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.

I guess the Big Pharm wants to increase their huge profits on Xeralto, Plavix and a dozen other expensive blood thinners.They don't make anything on aspirin.

This was discontinued as a blood thinner in U.K. sixty years ago so good to see US finally catching up . However it will be another twenty years before horse medicine takers in the US accept this change.

This "news" is several years old. You all just now hearing about it? Sometimes....just sometimes there is no conspiracy lurking around the corner. Only the conspiracy junkies can see it.

What's with this science stuff? I think we should go back to using leeches to cure people.

Strange as just yesterday i saw the headline saying aspirin might be good at fighting covid. So not surprising to see this today from a panel of (experts) seeing the devil bill gates said in a TED talk they will use vaccinations to reduce the world population. And with this jab being a clot shot they would hate to see the aspirin thin your blood and stop a blood clot. Some sheeple will never wake up and realize what is happening
