The ‘wonder drug’ increases the risk of cerebral ‘microbleeds’ by 70
per cent, researchers discovered after carrying out brain scans on 1,062
The Rotterdam Scan Study, which carried out the research, discovered
that people who were taking relatively low doses of around 89 mg of
aspirin were far more likely to suffer a microbleed than those who
infrequently took larger doses of around 300 mg for pain relief. The
recommended dose to prevent heart attacks and stroke is 75 mg a day.
