Aspirin can prevent many heart issues

Aspirin can prevent a heart attack. Doctors say low-dose aspirin is a standard therapy for people at an increased risk of a heart attack or stroke. But many on this therapy eventually stop taking it, because of side effects or they just get out of the habit.  Researchers looked at the medical records of  thousands of  adults. They all had been prescribed aspirin prevent cardiovascular trouble, compared to people who continued with the  therapy. Patients who stopped taking the daily dose were more likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke over the next three years. Study authors say the findings underscore the importance of sticking with an aspirin regimen, especially for people who have already had a heart attack or stroke.
