In Reply to: How relevant is aspirin in Reversal? Is aspirin a great risk to cause strokes? posted by Ricardo on August 1, 2010 at 7:08 pm:

Aspirin may be the most common non-prescription medication ever used. Since millions of people use aspirin on a daily basis for arthritis, cardiovascular risk and many other disorders, it is also one of the most well-studied.

Although almost anything taken orally has the potential for negative side effects, aspirin's are negligible.

At the dosage recommended for arterial benefits (81 mg), the risk of stroke is extremely small.

While this forum does not offer medical advice, after reviewing the research on aspirin, I can tell you that I personally continue to take 81 mg of aspirin daily.

Another view on aspirin, with advice on when and how much aspirin to take, if any, was provided by Dr. John McDougall in his free monthly Newsletter, available free at drmcdougall.com a few months ago. Use the archives on that site t get the article.
