[Alert!] The Aspirin Warning Every Senior MUST Read
I just talked to you about ignoring much of the mainstream’s advice when it comes to your health.
For decades, that applied to aspirin use as well.
The aspirin-a-day mantra has been preached from coast to coast, and 41 million people have bought into taking an aspirin a day to prevent heart disease.
But major medical associations have changed their tune when it comes to aspirin use.
And you won’t believe what they’re saying now.
I’ve been preaching about the dangers of using aspirin to prevent heart attacks and strokes for YEARS.
If you’re in the middle of having a heart attack, definitely pop an aspirin. But its risks are so high that it just doesn’t make sense to take it for primary prevention.
Now the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association agree with me.
These two major health organizations are now warning against taking daily aspirin as a way to prevent atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in people over 70 and in anyone at an increased risk of bleeding.
That’s right, folks.
Aspirin in out.
Why? Because it could kill you!
Studies show that aspirin dramatically increases the risk of deadly bleeding in the gut. The older you get, the higher the risk.
One study found that people 75 and older had TRIPLE the risk of deadly bleeding.
And those over 85 had FIVE TIMES the risk.
What do these institutions now recommend instead?
They recommend following a healthier lifestyle and working on reducing heart attack risk factors like high blood pressure.
If you’re already taking aspirin, please talk with your doctor about coming off the drug.
But you don’t have to wait to start putting into practice what I keep telling about all the time.
Eat a natural, nutrient-dense diet with plenty of superfoods and raw foods. Use your body for physical work on a daily basis.
And consider taking a natural supplement like CoQ10. It’s great for giving your aging heart an energy boost (I even take it myself).

One of the biggest pitfalls of mainstream medicine is that it is primarily symptom-based. They have a separate drug to treat every symptom you can imagine.
