Daily aspirin was once thought an easy way to keep from having a heart attack.
But recent studies show that it actually might do more harm than good. That’s because any good from a daily aspirin could be offset by the dangers that come with it. These include internal bleeding and other problems.
Rather than taking a daily aspirin, most people are better off trying healthier habits. These include heart-healthy meals, regular exercise and watching your blood pressure and cholesterol.
