Aspirin is known for its renowned effects at relieving pain, but its advantages extend beyond pain relief. It’s been known for a while now that daily aspirin use can help prevent heart problems. In fact, experts recommend the daily use of low-dose aspirin to help prevent cardiovascular disease, a condition that can lead to heart attack or stroke. However, the risk associated with taking this pill every day is less clear. While the daily use of aspirin can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, it can also increase the chance of gastrointestinal or other bleeding. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital believe their new app, “Aspirin Guide,” can help doctors and patients make informed decisions about aspirin use.
