37. Anti-Aging Aid: Aspirin
Aspirin can lower a person's risk of death from any cause, even in men and women who are so inactive that their inactivity increases their risk of death. A daily low dose of aspirin (81 mg) can cut the risk of death in people known or thought to have heart disease by as much as 30-40%, by preventing platelet aggregation.
A review of nearly 300 studies into the benefits of aspirin has confirmed that low-doses of the drug can dramatically reduce the risk of death from heart attack or stroke. People treated with aspirin or other anti-platelet drugs were 33% less likely to have a heart attack, 25% less likely to suffer a non-fatal stroke and nearly 17% less likely to die from cardiovascular-related causes...
