Unfortunately, the conventional medical system has encouraged taking aspirin for improving the cardiovascular system along with recommending aspirin for pain relief and other symptoms. Did you know that a reported 40,000 people die each year from the use of over-the-counter painkillers like aspirin. This is not something the pharmaceutical industry wants people to know about.
Acetylsalicylic acid, the more technical name for aspirin, is actually a synthetic derivative of natural willow bark. However, since this synthetic anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) was first developed, it has been observed to cause severe health problems and even death, especially when taken regularly.
Reasons to Never Take Aspirin Again
More than 10 percent of patients taking low-dose aspirin develop gastric ulcers. Regular aspirin use destroys the lining of your gastrointestinal tract, increasing your risk for duodenal ulcers, H. Pylori infection, Crohn’s disease, diverticular disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and intestinal perforations.
Can Cause Cancer
New research suggests those who use the painkiller regularly over a long period are up to 86 per cent more likely to develop the killer disease.
According to a recent study, women who took two or more aspirins a week for more than 20 years had a 58 per cent increased risk of pancreatic cancer compared with women who rarely, or never, used the medication. The risk of pancreatic cancer rose the more aspirins were taken.
