Read it for yourself! So, the Wall Street Journal’s Health and Wellness: Panel recommendation for older adults to “drop aspirin” to prevent heart attacks, followed on the heels of: ‘Aspirin lowers risk of COVID: New findings support preliminary trial’-Jerusalem Post, Oct. 6, 2021.
The team investigated more than 400 COVID patients from hospitals across the United States. “The treatment reduced the risk of reaching mechanical ventilation by 44%. ICU admissions were lower by 43%, and an overall in-hospital mortality saw a 47% decrease.
“Over-the-counter aspirin could protect the lungs of COVID-19 patients and minimize the need for mechanical ventilation, according to new research at the George Washington University.
“The team investigated more than 400 COVID patients from hospitals across the United States who take aspirin unrelated to their COVID disease, and found that the treatment reduced the risk of several parameters by almost half: reaching mechanical ventilation by 44%, ICU admissions by 43%, and overall in-hospital mortality by 47%.
“As we learned about the connection between blood clots and COVID-19, we knew that aspirin – used to prevent stroke and heart attack – could be important for COVID-19 patients,” said Dr. Jonathan Chow of the study team. “Our research found an association between low-dose aspirin and decreased severity of COVID-19 and death.”
“Low-dose aspirin is a common treatment for anyone suffering from blood clotting issues or in danger of stroke, including most people who had a heart attack or a myocardial infarction. Although affecting the respiratory system, the coronavirus has been associated with small blood vessel clotting, causing tiny blockages in the pulmonary blood system, leading to ARDS - acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Aspirin has been a remedy for human maladies for generations! “Israeli researchers reached similar results in a preliminary trial at the Barzilai Medical Center in March. In addition to its effect on blood clots, they found that aspirin carried immunological benefits and that the group taking it was 29% less likely to become infected with the virus in the first place.
“Aspirin is low cost, easily accessible and millions are already using it to treat their health conditions,” said Chow. “Finding this association is a huge win for those looking to reduce risk from some of the most devastating effects of COVID-19.”
BIG QUESTION: Why are the masses only finding out about this, more than a year and a half after the Covid-19 so-called Pandemic hit?!
Aspirin has been a remedy for human maladies for generations. And because of its modest price, untold billions have ready access to it.
“If you take aspirin, you’ve got a pain reliever, heart attack preventer and possible cancer preventer rolled into one tablet. You might think that whoever invented aspirin is a genius, but the truth is humans have been using its natural equivalent for thousands of years. (From a tree, a ‘miracle’ called aspirin’. (Elizabeth Landau, CNN,Dec. 22, 2010)
“Aspirin is one of those things that, long before there were ever clinical trials or any kind of scientific knowledge, people figured out, ‘Hey, I feel better when I take this substance,’ ” said Dr. Karol Watson, assistant professor of cardiology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles.
“The drug has been making headlines because a study in the Lancet recently found that a daily aspirin appeared to lower the risk of cancer by at least 20% during a 20-year period. That’s based on data from more than 25,000 patients and builds on earlier findings that aspirin may lower the risk of colorectal cancer. The research has limitations and is not definitive proof, but it does add another benefit to an ancient remedy that has been called a miracle drug.
The word “aspirin” comes from Spiraea. “There are no countries in which it is unknown, unappreciated, or unavailable,” the late medical writer Berton Roueché wrote in 1955, in an article later published in the anthology “The Medical Detectives.”
“The word “aspirin” wasn’t a coincidence. It comes from Spiraea, a biological genus of shrubs that includes natural sources of the drug’s key ingredient: salicylic acid. This acid, resembling what’s in modern-day aspirin, can be found in jasmine, beans, peas, clover and certain grasses and trees.
“The ancient Egyptians used willow bark as a remedy for aches and pains, said Diarmuid Jeffreys, author of “Aspirin: The Remarkable Story of a Wonder Drug.” They didn’t know that what was reducing body temperature and inflammation was the salicylic acid.
“Hippocrates, the Greek physician who lived from about 460 to 377 B.C., wrote that willow leaves and bark relieved pain and fevers.
“The aspirin we know came into being in the late 1890s in the form of acetylsalicylic acid when chemist Felix Hoffmann at Bayer in Germany used it to alleviate his father’s rheumatism, a timeline from Bayer says.
Meanwhile will Dr. Gloomy Gus Anthony Fauci and the governments he’s sucked in, squat on low-dose aspirin the same way they’re now squatting on Ivermectin
“The Nobel Prize in medicine in 1982 was awarded to researchers who demonstrated the reason—it inhibits production of hormones called prostoglandins.
“Prostoglandins are responsible for the formation of clots that leads to heart attacks and strokes, and aspirin prevents that clotting from happening.“
Physicians, who have been the butt of the age-old joke with the punch line, “Take two aspirin and call me in the morning,” may have been right all along.
Ditto for loving mothers who admonished their children, over generations, “You’ll catch your death in this weather if you don’t put on a coat!”
Meanwhile will Dr. Gloomy Gus Anthony Fauci and the governments he’s sucked in, squat on low-dose aspirin the same way they’re now squatting on Ivermectin to treat COVID-19?
Will they, with the help of a compliant Fake News Media. continue to suppress all that is ‘good for what ails ya?’
As the ‘in-house’ doctor at CFP says, “Take two aspirin and come back to reality in the morning”.
For the sake of your health: Ignore Fauci and gang. Keep a supply of low-dose aspirin in your medicine cabinet before the Cancel Culture destroys all the supplies, burns the drug stores and leaves the rest for the media to kill the cheap idea aspirin just may be a good treatment for early Covit!
