    This reminds of of the old commercial tag line (and I'm showing my age here): "Why trade a headache for an upset stomach?".

    Seems tame compared to some of the warnings I hear on TV pharmaceutical commercials..."Death may be possible."... Scary and redundant!

    If you suffer from Tinnitus, as I do, talk to your ENT about aspirin. He or she may have a different viewpoint.

    I'll stick to shaking a root over a dead chicken every new moon. The science is probably just as sound, and I get to eat the chicken afterwards.

    Maybe that little 81mg aspirin is cutting into the Cardiologists profits. So now they bad mouth the aspirin to get people to stop taking them so they can develop heart issues so they can go in and operate to get the big bucks coming back in.

    ASA 81 mg can be a problem to very old whose skin is fragile and breaks and bleeds easily. so far reports say ASA should be taken mainly by old who have had a heart attack. we shall see.

    Bayer is snickering.

    Maybe this is no good because you don't have to tell your doctor you need it to get it.

    I will never take it. I had a relative who died of a bleed less than a month after being nagged into the baby aspirin by his doctor "as a preventative" when he had no other health issues.

    My mother told me that when she was young they say it is the white of the egg that is not healthy. Then years later, they retracted and said it was the yellow that is not healthy. Then years later, they said the egg is healthy. then later they said it is not healthy.

    Anyway my mother did not pay too much attention and lived till 94 and might have been still alive if it were not for a doctor's stupid mistake.....

    Bottom line, use your brain and take everything in reasonable proportion....

  • just saying

    an aspirin 3 x a week and back to eggs once a week. I can't keep up.
