Too many people take aspirin to prevent heart attacks, stroke, study says

In other words, 11.6% of patients were taking the drug "inappropriately," according to a study published Monday in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

The real benefits of low-dose aspirin come when it is combined with high-dose fish oil to enhance the production of resolvins.  If you are only taking low-dose aspirin without adequate omega-3 fatty acids, don’t expect too much.

    Dear Doctor,
    I am from the UK and my 84 year old mother has very recently had a mini stroke. She had a second mini stroke two days ago. I am already taking OmegaRx 2 and I would like to know if my mother can take this as well. She is currently taking high dose of asprin and clopidogrel.

    If it is possible for her to take it, I will organise the extra shipments with Patty Tampone.

    Regards,

    P.S. my stepson has just lost 1 1/2 stone in 6 weeks after reading Enter the Zone and says that he feels great!
