Aspirin causes bleeding in the brain
Aspirin is the ultimate ‘just in case’ drug, with millions of people taking it daily to ward off heart attack and stroke.  But new research has discovered it can cause bleeding in the brain.
 

The ‘wonder drug’ increases the risk of cerebral ‘microbleeds’ by 70 per cent, researchers discovered after carrying out brain scans on 1,062 people.
 

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.
