What do the new recommendations on aspirin mean for you?Internist Dr. Keith Roach of Weill-Cornell Medical College joins Dr. Darria to discuss the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force’s new recommendations on aspirin. The new guidelines suggest that some people who have never even suffered a heart attack should still take a daily low-dose aspirin to prevent heart attacks and stroke, as well as colon cancer, despite potential risks of deadly internal bleeding. The USPSTF says adults in their 50s who have a 10 percent or greater risk of heart disease over the next 10 years should take a low-dose aspirin daily.Listen in as Dr. Roach shares more information about these new recommendations.Submit “Ask Dr. Darria” questions on Twitter to @SharecareInc with #SharecareRadio or email questions to askdrdarria@radiomd.com.More from Sharecare:Fight Food Allergies
