Taking aspirin daily does not reduce the the chance of heart attack or stroke and has no benefit in prolonging life free of disability, a study has found. Aspirin-related compounds have been used for the treatment of pain since the 16th century BC, when it was reported that people chewed on the bark of willow and papyrus.

.

In three studies, involving over 19,000 people, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers showed that daily low-dose aspirin (100 mg), when initiated in otherwise healthy people from age 70 onwards, has no benefit in prolonging life free of disability, or substantially reducing the risk of having a first heart attack or stroke.
