    As far as I know , Aspirin acts on the platelets which live for 7days ; so if I take one every 7 days it will have an anticoagulant effect . But what about Aspirin preventing some types of cancer like colon cancer ?

    I'm almost 60, been taking a baby aspirin daily for about two years. About six months ago I started having severe stomach pains that have sent me to the ER. Now I'm thinking it could be the aspirin so I'm am going to stop taking it immediately. I pray my pain goes away.

    It causes Liver damage.
    Do your research.

  11. Mys Led says:

    Why would you take one daily? I thought the benefit of taking a low dose aspirin against heart attacks or a stroke were if you felt as though you might be about to suffer one of those, would you than tale an aspirin.

    So if taking a daily dose of aspirin is potentially worse for you with the negative side effects, does the research say anything about taking a dose before having an attack?
