[Warning] Popular Heart Drug Could Be DEADLY!
The fear of heart disease is very real… and for good reason.
It’s remained the top killer in the US for decades.
More and more people are taking steps to reduce their risk of heart disease, and I couldn’t be happier about that.
Unfortunately, one of the main prevention strategies could not just be dangerous… it could actually be deadly.
And chances are your mainstream doc has already pushed it on you.
Millions of people take an aspirin a day because they’ve been told it will help prevent heart disease.
But if you’re not in the middle of having a heart attack, put the aspirin bottle down… and WALK AWAY.
The aspirin-a-day mantra has people thinking that popping these pills is the equivalent of eating an apple a day.
Because while apples can help protect your heart, help prevent cancer, support bone health, and protect your brain, taking aspirin for prevention purposes could be actually deadly.
A recent meta-analysis published in JAMA Neurology reviewed 13 randomized clinical trials including 134,000 people who did NOT have heart disease to evaluate the use of low-dose aspirin for primary prevention.
This means that the people who were taking aspirin did not have heart issues, but were taking the aspirin to help prevent it from occurring.
It turns out that the people taking aspirin for primary prevention had a 40% higher risk of having an intracranial hemorrhage than people not taking aspirin.
Intracranial hemorrhage is doctor-speak for BLEEDING IN THE BRAIN.
And it’s every bit as bad as it sounds.
Intracranial hemorrhage is associated with a higher risk of dying and overall worse health if you do stay alive.
But what about the benefits?
This study didn’t evaluate that, but other studies have shown that taking aspirin for primary prevention does absolutely nothing to extend your life.
In other words, while taking it won’t help you live longer, it could dramatically increase your risk of developing potentially deadly bleeding in the brain.
The benefit just doesn’t outweigh the risks. Period.
