To take aspirin or not take aspirin, that is the question

We thought we had this down, right? We take low dose aspirin every day to help fight our risk of cancer and heart disease. Wrong. At least according to a recent analysis of nine trials involving more than 100,000 people. Aspirin can lower our risk of first heart attack or stroke by 10%. Of course, discussing your medication regimen with your health care provider is essential prior to making any changes.
