No More Daily Aspirin for Healthy Hearts

Someone at the FDA must subscribe to the DrDeborahMD newsletter? You might remember some time ago that I suggested the conventional wisdom might be erroneous: the risk of daily aspirin is real, and people without known heart disease have no real benefit and only harm to be expected from taking a daily aspirin. I recommended against it here.

Or perhaps there's a nother explanation (do you think?), but either way I am happy to report that the official public recommendation on taking a daily aspirin has changed. The FDA has taken a position against a daily aspirin and urges those taking one on a doctor's advice to bring the subject up again with your doctor.
