I don't think the marketing departments for low dose aspirin are very happy right now. I have had several doctors recommend me taking low dose aspirin but I never took it. I am opting for an omega 3 blend from algae to use instead.

"People who took the placebo had a 0.46% risk of having a head bleed during the combined trial periods. For those who took low-dose aspirin, the risk was 0.63%, the equivalent of an additional 2 out of every 1,000 people developing a bleed"

Always check with your medical practitioner!

Scary. I pray that people are careful when taking OTC or any medications.
Thanks Frank
