The results showed that:

  • Aspirin use was associated with an 11% lower risk of cardiovascular events.
  • Approximately 250 patients needed to be treated with aspirin for 5 years to prevent a single heart attack, stroke or cardiovascular death.
  • Aspirin use was associated with a 43% of major bleeding events, compared to those who did not take it.
  • Approximately one in 200 people treated with aspirin would have a major bleed.
  • No effect was seen with aspirin on new cancer diagnoses or deaths.

A new study published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has found that taking aspirin on a regular basis to prevent heart attacks and strokes, can lead to an increase risk of almost 50 percent in major bleeding episodes.

I have a strong affinity for the sciences which led me to create my sites. My compulsion for the past decade has been reviewing literally every peer-reviewed research article. Which can easily be validated by following my posts. To me, science is where the real news is, as it will mold our destiny beyond that of politics or economics. 😉 Please feel free to e-mail: 161803p314159@gmail.com
