Should I take an aspirin a day?

Updated: May 7, 2021

It is well known that aspirin prevents heart attack, stroke, blood clots. Aspirin may prevent some kinds of cancer, but is aspirin right for me?

The answer is: depends.

Only very selective group of people between the age of 50-60 may benefit from preventive dose of daily aspirin. The only other time you should take aspirin is if your doctor prescribes it for certain heart and vascular conditions, stroke, complicated pregnancies.

So aspirin is not for all, in most healthy people risks of taking aspirin may outweigh any benefits.

Check with your doctor during preventive visit if is aspirin is right for you! Do not self medicate.
