1) Please tell us if aspirin should be consumed taking in
consideration the kind of vegetable we eat, to avoid stomach

Dr. Oz wrote in his homepage:

Over the counter pain reducers and prescription blood thinners
- Certain anti-inflammatory pain medications called NSAIDs
(aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen) reduce body chemicals called
prostaglandins that are involved in pain pathways. But these
chemicals also protect the stomach lining. They also tend to
add to the anticoagulant power of blood thinners by further
reducing platelets, the blood cells involved in clotting. The
combo can cause massive gastrointestinal bleeding.

2)Dr. Oz in his FOX TV program alerted that even some
vegetables are dangerous when mixed with statins. I use pepper
to rise the flavor of the food we cook. Should I?) What other
vegetables?. How should I proceed with this?
