If you're a healthy adult, who takes a low-dose daily aspirin to prevent a heart attack we have some newly released information for you.

New guidelines recommend dropping the aspirin if you don't have a high risk for heart disease.

Doctors say it's better to advocate for a healthy lifestyle and to urge smokers to quit than to recommend 'daily aspirin therapy' to those without cardiovascular disease.

Aspirin *can save the lives of those who have had a stroke a heart attack or have had stents inserted.

You should consult your doctor before making any changes to your current routine.
