URGENT Aspirin Warning For Seniors
Remember those old episodes of “Let’s Make a Deal?”
Some contestant would think they were about to win a car… but there’d be a pig or a goat behind the curtain instead.
Well, that’s what it’s like taking aspirin every day – you’re never getting what you expect.
Millions of folks are popping these tiny white pills daily, even though there’s no evidence that they prevent heart attacks.
Now, a brand new study is proving that taking aspirin can be downright deadly for folks over 75.
And, as usual, the mainstream medical establishment isn’t lifting a finger to warn us.
Researchers from Oxford have discovered that people over the age of 75 who take aspirin on a daily basis have a far greater risk of serious – and potentially fatal – bleeding.
And this wasn’t some small study they conducted, either.
For 10 years, the team followed 3,166 patients who had previously had either a stroke or a heart attack and were taking aspirin.
During those ten years, patients over the age of 75 were more than TWICE as likely to be hospitalized with bleeding episodes.
And those 85 and older were THREE times more likely to be hospitalized.
Worse still? Many of those hospitalized seniors ended up dying.
That ought to be setting off alarm bells at every mainstream doctor’s office in the world.
Because between 40 and 60 percent of all people over the age of 75 in the United States and the Europe are taking some form of aspirin every day in hopes of preventing a heart attack or stroke.
But, of course, the medical establishment STILL can’t bring itself to admit that you should stop taking aspirin.
Instead, they want you to protect your stomach from aspirin’s effects by taking proton pump inhibitors like Nexium or Prilosec.
Are they INSANE?!?
PPIs are billion-dollar heartburn drugs that have been linked to everything from weakened bones to dementia – two things NO senior needs.
And here’s the kicker – regular use of PPIs has also been shown to increase your risk of a potentially fatal hemorrhage.
This is like inviting a rattlesnake AND a cobra into your bed! One of them is going to bite you… maybe both.
But these “experts” are willing to double your risk rather than admit that aspirin was never a good recommendation in the first place.
If you or someone you love is taking aspirin daily, immediately consult with your doctor about safer alternatives.
Some all-natural heart-friendly options are supplements rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, and folic acid – all of which can be found in any local vitamin shop.
