This CRAZY Health Advice Can Kill You!

Dear Reader,

Studies on the dangers of aspirin are like a bad penny… they just keep turning up.

For years, the mainstream medical establishment has tried to convince us that taking a daily aspirin is the modern equivalent of an apple-a-day.

And that’s absolutely CRAZY.

Because new research shows just how deadly aspirin can be for seniors – especially for folks over 75.

And if you’re on a daily aspirin regimen, you may be at far greater risk than you ever realized.

Most people take aspirin to help prevent having a heart attack or stroke.

And if I was in the middle of having a heart attack, I’d probably take one. But for primary prevention? NO WAY.

The drug is well known for increasing the risk of bleeding in the gut, but I guess most people assume it’s worth the risk.

Wrong.

This study, published in the Lancet, was the first to show just how fatal that bleeding can be in older adults.

The researchers followed 3,166 people who were taking aspirin after suffering from a heart attack or stroke.

They found that people 75 and older had TRIPLE the risk of deadly bleeding.

And those over 85 had FIVE TIMES the risk.

In other words, these older individuals didn’t just have a higher risk of HAVING a major upper GI bleed—but of that bleed being disabling or FATAL.

Instead of suggesting that these individuals stop taking aspirin (since it was NEVER meant to be used long-term to begin with), the researchers had something else in mind.

Apparently, taking proton pump inhibitors like Nexium or Prilosec ALONG WITH aspirin can help reduce the bleeding risks associated with aspirin.

PPIs?! Are you KIDDING ME?

These are the SAME PPIs I told you about a few weeks ago that increase the risk of DEATH!

These are the SAME PPIs that I told you about a few months ago that increase the risk of deadly infections.

There the SAME PPIs that are well known for increasing the risk of muscle weakness, pneumonia, kidney disease, and dementia.

And now they want you to take PPIs to reduce the risks associated with ASPIRIN?

Let’s get a few things straight.

  1. Studies have shown time and again that using aspirin for primary prevention doesn’t save lives—which means the risk just doesn’t outweigh the benefit.
  2. PPIs have NO place… not for heartburn, and certainly not to reduce a side effect associated with aspirin.

If you’re taking one or both, talk to your doctor about coming off. You may end up saving your life in the process.

To a brighter day,
