Daily Aspirin Use Appears to be Beneficial in Women

In a new study of almost 80,000 women, aspirin use at low to moderate doses was associated with a reduced risk of all-cause mortality, largely due to death from cardiovascular disease. It’s very important to note, however, that women should not start taking daily aspirin without asking their doctor’s advice first. Aspirin can cause ulcers and dangerous bleeding in certain people.
