Aspirin increases the risk of a brain hemorrhage.
Many people have been told to pop a daily aspirin to prevent heart attacks and strokes, even those who do not have any heart diseases.
A recent study has shown that taking a low-dose aspirin may increase the risk of severe brain bleeding, to the point where it outweighs any potential benefit.
When a hemorrhage occurs in the skull, oxygen-rich blood can't reach brain tissue and instead pools around the brain.
This can lead to permanent damage or even death.
This doesn't just come from me.
