An Aspirin a Day Keeps a Heart Attack at Bay
It has been long known that a daily half tab of soluble aspirin helps those with heart problems by thinning the blood. Experts have now determined the age at which doctors should urge their patients to take a daily aspirin in an attempt to HALVE strokes and heart disease. It is 48 for men and 57 for women, in good health.
Researchers calculated the ideal age for taking the tablet to improve circulation and help people to live longer.
GPs are now being urged to hand out the wonderdrug to all healthy men over 48 and women over 57, as patients in these age groups have a 10 per cent risk in the next decade of cardiovascular disease – the furring of arteries and veins. It is the main cause of heart disease, heart attacks and strokes – and leads to 208,000 deaths every year in the UK.
