  • Should You Take a Daily Aspirin?

    Recent research shows that three years of taking aspirin daily is associated with a small reduction in heart attacks only in people who have had previous heart attacks, but not in those who had not had a previous heart attack (Clin Cardiol, May 2017). Previous studies have shown similar results (Am J Med, Feb 2015;128(2):137-43). People aged 50 to 70 are more likely to benefit from taking aspirin than those in other age groups.
