Rumble / Trending NewsDoctors often recommend patients take low-dose aspirin to prevent heart disease and stroke. However, a new report reveals that the practice is associated with an increased risk of bleeding in the skull in people without a history of those conditions. According to CNN, researchers analyzed data from 13 previous studies in which over 130,000 people ages 42 to 74, who didn't have a history of heart disease or stroke, were given either aspirin or a placebo for the prevention of these conditions.
