    Default FDA Nixes Aspirin Amid Controversy

    Hiyaguha Cohen

    Back in grade school, most of us learned that "a body at rest tends to stay at rest." The law of inertia, of course, applies to the material world, but it also seems to rule thinking in the medical domain. When it comes to abandoning an accustomed practice, doctors often resist, even if evidence indicates that the practice is useless, or worse, harmful. Take, for example, the practice of prescribing a daily aspirin to patients at risk for cardiovascular problems.

    This week, in a miracle turnaround, the Food and Drug Administration withdrew its recommendation that all at-risk patients should take an aspirin a day.1 The Agency issued a statement saying, "The FDA has reviewed the available data and does not believe the evidence supports the general use of aspirin for primary prevention of a heart attack or stroke."

    I have been listening to several alternate medical practitioners (Chris Kresser, etc.) and they are concerned that daily aspirin use or other daily use of NSAIDS are contributing to leaky gut which leads to all kinds of autoimmune diseases. I think that idea/theory has merit.
