Millions in the US are self-medicating with low-dose aspirin

https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/325833.php

It seems like a good idea on the surface - a low-cost, over-the-counter method to prevent heart disease.  Most people think that taking low-dose aspirin is risk-free, but it's not for people with ulcers, and it could interfere with other medications.  ALWAYS consult a doctor before beginning any treatment or prevention routine, even if you think it's harmless.
