Getting to the heart of bogus aspirin claims
I'm a man of routine, and I've been starting each day with the "three B's" for years.
You know what I'm talking about. Bathe, brush the chompers, and relieve the bowels.
But the moment they hit 50, lots of folks add a fourth B to the morning equation -- they pop a Bayer aspirin.
And it's giving me one heck of a headache.
For years the medical mainstream has been pushing nonsense about how aspirin can wipe away heart attacks one tiny pill at a time. The only problem is it's a mighty tall tale right up there with Pecos Bill lassoing tornadoes or Paul Bunyan digging Lake Michigan with his trusty axe.
But if you've been swallowing this medical myth for years, even Uncle Sam -- the same guy who never met a drug he wouldn't ask you to swallow -- says it's time to stop.
It's a chilly day in hell and that wasn't a 747 that just flew over your home -- it WAS a pig with wings. Because the FDA has just REJECTED an effort by Bayer to start claiming aspirin is a "primary" tool for preventing heart attacks and strokes.
And the reason was so simple, even the feds could explain it -- there's just NO evidence.
The FDA poured through years of studies -- and so have I -- and there isn't a shred of proof that aspirin can prevent heart attacks for folks who have never had one. But there's PLENTY of proof that aspirin can cause internal bleeding and even INCREASE your risk of heart disease!
Friend, I didn't even know the feds owned a "REJECT" stamp. But apparently they do because they dug it out and dusted it off for this -- and you need to pay attention. Before you waste another dollar on aspirin therapy, start demanding something you'll never see on a Bayer bottle or one of their slick television commercials.
Proof it works.
