Many people know that aspirin can be a real lifesaver. When taken at the first signs of a heart attack, aspirin can save your life.
What many people do not know is that, "An aspirin a day can help keep the heart disease away". Taking a low dose of aspirin (half of a regular aspirin) or a baby aspirin has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease by 30 percent.
Taking an aspirin a day has also been shown to be beneficial to people who do not run the risk of heart disease or show no heart disease related events.
Aspirin therapy should be something that you and your doctor discuss before beginning. Aspirin can have adverse effects on people, so it is always a good idea to talk to your doctor before taking aspirin.
