They call it a “risk.”
I’ve got another word for it: FRAUD!
A drug that’s supposed to PROTECT your heart could instead give you HEART FAILURE.
Here’s what makes this such a nightmare…
It’s not some obscure or weird little med that no one’s ever heard of. It’s one of the most commonly used medications on the planet!
You definitely know someone taking it. You might even be on it yourself.
I’m talking about aspirin.
If you or your loved ones are on it… it’s time to get on the phone and ask your doc if there’s a way out.
But as you’ll see in a moment, it’s bad news even WITHOUT this ugly risk.
And fortunately, there are better and safer ways to get more complete and lasting heart protection.
Taking the pulse on new aspirin risk
Aspirin’s already SO notorious for bleeding problems… including and brain bleeds…
Officials PULLED their recommendation of it years ago for primary prevention (i.e. stopping a first heart attack).
But NOT EVERYBODY got the message.
Millions are still on daily aspirin -- and the new study finds they could be sitting ducks for a scary new risk.
In people who already have one risk factor for heart problems… taking this drug faithfully could raise the odds of heart failure by 26%!
That’s pretty much EVERYONE on aspirin, by the way. That’s WHY you’re on it – you have a risk factor, or maybe multiple risk factors, and hope the drug will help even the score.
Instead, it’s doing just the opposite.
That means MILLIONS of older Americans are now facing this risk – one that most likely aren’t even aware of.
This new study from the European Society of Cardiology isn’t generating big headlines over here.
So lemme give it to you straight.
Unless you’re one of the folks in some very specific situations who MIGHT need to take aspirin…
It’s high time to quit.
Just don’t give up the drugs on your own. Studies show quitting aspirin suddenly could be as dangerous as taking it. So, make sure your doc’s on board and can help you quit safely.
Then, get cracking on a better plan for heart health… one backed by science that can deliver real protection without putting you at risk of heart failure.
For starters, I generally suggest…
- magnesium, and
- vitamin E as mixed tocopherols.
A naturopathic physician can help you figure out a more specific plan customized to your risks and needs.
