The companies that manufacture aspirin convinced us that it should be taken every day to prevent heart attack. Well, guess what? They’re wrong. Big time.
According to Dr. Al Sears, aspirin has no effect on preventing heart attacks. Or strokes. Even worse, he tells us, a new study by Scottish researchers found that daily aspirin use increases the risk of:
* Gastrointestinal bleeding
* Major abdominal bleeding
* Pancreatic cancer
* Kidney failure
Fortunately, there are natural alternatives. White willow bark, for instance, has been around for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians took advantage of its anti-inflammatory power. And Hippocrates, the father of medicine, had his patients chew it to reduce fever.
Consider the wisdom of our ancestors before taking your next aspirin.
