Does Taking Aspirin Help to Prevent Heart Attacks or Stokes?
While most health experts may agree that taking a low-dose of aspirin daily may help prevent heart attacks by thinning or breaking down the blood keeping clots from forming, the latest research shows a very serious negative effect -- increased risk of internal bleeding from its acidic effects -- which negates any benefits.
A review of 13 studies on nearly 165,000 adults without heart disease and a mean age of 62, showed that five years of taking aspirin/acetaminophen every day increased a higher percentage of major bleeding episodes as it reduced the incidence of heart attacks. The results were published in last month’s Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA).
“This means that the number of lives that were saved by aspirin decreasing clotting to cause heart attacks was not better than the number of lives that we lost by aspirin causing bleeding to trigger strokes and stomach bleeds,” Dr. Gabe Mirkin, author of “The Healthy Heart Miracle,” says.
“The absolute risk reduction of fatal and non-fatal heart attacks and strokes was 0.38 percent, compared to the increased risk of 0.47 percent for a major bleeding into the brain or gastrointestinal tract.”
Another blockbuster study backs up this research. It showed that the number of diabetic lives saved from heart attacks and clotting strokes by taking daily aspirin/acetaminophen was also offset by an increased number of diabetics who died from major bleeding into the brain, eyes and stomach from its acidic effects, according to the New England Journal of Medicine.
According to Robert O. Young, DSc, PhD, "aspirin or acetaminophen is highly acidic and will damage the cover cells of the stomach that produce sodium bicarbonate, destroy the intestinal villi which produce stem cells, suppress the white blood cells that maintain cleanliness of the internal fluids and crenate the red blood cells which become the new body cells."
"The most effective way to protect against heart attack and stroke is to maintain the alkaline design of the body fluids with an alkaline lifestyle and diet. This lifestyle would include managing stress, getting 6 to 8 hours of sleep daily, exercising at least 1 hour a day and eating liberal amounts of green fruit and vegetables," according to Dr. Young.
In the words of Hippocrates, "Let YOUR food be YOUR medicine and YOUR medicine be YOUR food!
Taking chemical acids is not a healthy way to prevent sickness and disease. To stay healthy and fit it starts with what you eat, what your drink, what you breathe, what you think and what you believe!
