The old adage used to be ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’, today it has changed to ‘an aspirin a day,,,” But with these new findings, I think it is time once again to go back to the apple!
Daily aspirin use was associated with a higher-than-expected increase in the risk for major bleeding in an Italian study published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association.Millions of people take aspirin every day! Daily aspirin therapy has been proven to lower the risk for a second heart attack or stroke in people who have already suffered one. The treatment’s usefulness for preventing a first heart attack or stroke is apparently not so clear anymore.
As the doctor in the kitchen I am thinking why take that unnecessary risk. ” Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food!” If you want to protect your heart try a daily dose of omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts, flax seeds and oily cold water fish. Add a little garlic to the mx and voila, you have the perfect blend of heart healthy natural blood thinning, no side effects medicine that tastes good too!
