Aspirin saves lives and you have got to believe it!
ASPIRIN SAVES LIVES
ASPIRIN IS A LIVE SAVER HEADS OR TAILS! A TABLET OF ASPIRIN A DAY CAN GO A LONG WAY TO KEEP YOU ALIVE AND KICKING MORE THAN MOST PAINKILLERS OF ALL AGES!
This is the continuation of the previous article entitled "History of aspirin" In this article, I will explain why it is necessary that you should take it regularly if possible daily.
I have been taking it every day for the last 5 years and I'm glad, I have not witnessed or suffered from some of the known side effects!
ASPIRIN A DAY CAN CUT YOUR RISK OF SOME DEADLY DISEASES SUCH AS HEART ATTACKS, STROKE, AND SOME KINDS OF CANCERS FROM PROSTRATE TO COLON AND BREAST CANCERS!
To obtain the saving services of aspirin, you have to first consult your doctor, a good pharmacist, medical practitioner or GP depending on which country you live. Aspirin is once again marketed or sold in all the countries and continents of the world and it is relatively the cheapest medical preparation on the surface of this world!
If you live in Nigeria, or in most of the third world countries, make sure that you buy a genuine one not faked one since these countries are known to sell faked drugs.
The best to take is described as Soluble or 'Dispersible aspirin' tablets (B.P. 75mg). They are called dispersible or soluble because they are meant to dissolve in water and gets into the blood stream as fast as possible especially in cases where someone is having a heart attack. Once the disolved tablet gets into his blood stream it must relieve or stop the ferocity of the attack.
Soluble aspirins do not come under prescription as most drugs but it is good to ask your medical adviser first to see if you will be suitable to take the drug. Most of the dispersible aspirins have the manufacturer's instructions on them and they are as follows:
"Can help prevent further heart attacks and strokes in patients with previous history of these conditions. Can also be used following by-pass surgery"
Manufacturer's instructions continues as follows: "For the secondary prevention of thrombotic cerebrovascular or cardiovascular disease and following by-pass surgery"
VARIOUS CURRENT SCIENTIFIC STUDIES PROVED THAT AN ASPIRIN A DAY CAN DO SO MUCH ESPECIALLY IN SAVING LIVES.
Over the years, aspirin effectiveness have been realized and acknowledged by all and sundries including doctors and patients but recent findings are that this little white pain killer has been hailed as a wonder drug-over the past few years it's been linked with a lower risk of conditions such as heart disease,arthritis and Alzheimer's.
The drug belongs to a class of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and experts think this ability to combat inflammation in body cells may be responsible for cutting the risk of certain diseases including breast cancer.
A recent announcement this week March 21st 2012 by research scientists alleges that "An aspirin a day may keep cancers at bay!"
Quoting a recent article in most newspapers and tabloids, especially by British Daily Mirror dated 21st March 2012,I, quote, "Yet another use may have been found for humble aspirin, with researchers claiming it can stop cancer spreading".
"The drug has long been prescribed to people with heart problems but new researches suggest it also has tumour-busting effects. The paper went on, " A daily dose of aspirin- costing as little as 1p- is said to reduce the risk of colon, lung and prostate cancer by half and lowers the chances of cancers spreading by 36 per cent"
" A similar match was found for the spread of oesophageal, gastric, biliary and breast cancer, according to Prof Peter Rothwell of the John Radcliffe hospital, Oxford. He said the findings, based on more than 50 clinical trials within three separate studies, 'add to the case for daily aspirin in prevention of cancer".
Finally, Prof Rothwell said: "If a simple compound can stop cancer spreading then scientists may be able to go away and develop something similar to aspirin-that works even better".
THE MEDICINAL HEALTH BENEFITS OF ASPIRIN AND REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE THIS WONDER DRUG HANDY:
1..REDUCES RISK OF HEART DISEASE:
It is believed that millions of heart-disease survivors take the very low-dose of soluble aspirin as I have already written in previous paragraphs because it thins the blood and can help stop a repeat attack.
US scientists reviewed the use of aspirin in more than 100,000 men and women who had no previous heart problems and found it lowered the risk of heart attacks,and problems in women by 12 per cent and the risk of strokes by 17 percent. In men, there was a whopping 32 per cent reduction in risk of heart attack.
2..HELPS PREVENT DVT:
The blood-thinning effects of aspirin mean it can also help protect against deep-vein thrombosis (DVT). People at higher risk- those with a history of blood clots, circulation problems or taking the contraceptive pill- may benefit from a low-dose pill before going on a long-haul flight, as long as their GP or medical advise agrees.
3..BOWEL AND PROSTATE CANCER:
Long-term, and regular use of aspirin reduces the risk of bowel cancer by 30 percent and prostate cancer by 20 per cent, according to study by the American Cancer Society.
Arthritis suffers who take aspirin are less likely to develop vascular dementia. The condition is caused by furring up of the blood vessels in the brain and there is early evidence that aspirin may alleviate that. However, further studies are on the way.
5..RELIEVES AND EASES ARTHRITIS:
Millions of people all over the world including Briton who take aspirin daily have expressed their delights in reaping the benefits of reducing pains and inflammation linked with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
It has been proved that regular intake or daily intake of aspirin can reduce the risk of a common form of skin cancer by 90 per cent this was reported by a scientist researcher at Queensland, Australia.
Some scientific have established that regular intake of aspirin can reduce the risk of ovarian cancer by and up to 40 percent and prostate cancer by up to 20 percent.
It has been established that this pregnancy complication is thought to be caused by blood clots in arteries going to the placenta. Regular aspirin intake may help keep these blood vessels open and prevents the potentially fatal rise in blood pressure that occurs with the condition.
9..PAIN RELIEF AND LUNG CANCER:
Most pains including mouth ulcers,sore throats can be relieved because aspirin contains some mild anesthetic. The effect of Lung cancer can equally be reduced by regular intake of aspirins.
Although aspirin has so much medical and medicinal benefits but I must warn you that all drugs, it has its side effects which includes dizziness, headaches and bowel bleeding.Some people can be allergic to the drug. It is better to take medical advice from your GP or your regular medical adviser or practitioner.
With all probability, if all things are equal, you will gain more from regular intake of aspirin because it saves lives!
