Sunday's recommendations say low-dose aspirin should not be given to prevent atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease on a routine basis to adults older than 70 or any adult at an increased risk of bleeding.
"Clinicians should be very selective in prescribing aspirin for people without known cardiovascular disease", John Hopkins cardiologist Dr. Roger Blumenthal, who co-chaired the new guidelines, said in a statement. If a person is already in the habit of taking aspirin daily as a preventive measure, it's best to consult a doctor for the best way to quit it, as suddenly stopping can also come with its own set of risks. "It is much more important to optimize lifestyle habits and control blood pressure and cholesterol rather than recommending aspirin".

Blumenthal went on to say more than 80 percent of all cardiovascular events are preventable-but we are falling short in implementing the proper strategies and lifestyle choices to do so. There is still a role for aspirin in other select people.
Instead, the guidelines recommended several behavioral changes to ensure a healthy heart. Another recent study found a similar increase in bleeding cases with no corresponding decrease in cardiovascular emergencies.

Dr. Chauhan emphasizes that whether you are on an aspirin regimen or not, a healthy lifestyle is important in protection against heart disease, "trying to avoid the red meats and fatty foods, trans fats that are more detrimental to your cardiovascular system (and) obviously avoiding smoking".

The use of aspirin in younger age groups "is now a class 2b recommendation", Campbell said, "which means it's not necessarily the best course of action; there's a lot of debate among experts and the data are not definitive", he added.
