The myth of taking a daily aspirin

Austin (KXAN)- You may have heard that taking a daily aspirin could help you avoid a heart attack. New studies show that may not necessarily be true.

The Food and Drug Administration said that there is little evidence to support the benefit of a daily aspirin in people who have never had a heart attack. Issues like internal bleeding in the stomach occur far too often for it to be a good idea.

Dr. Stanley Wang, a clinical cardiologist with the Heart Hospital of Austin explained to Erin Cargile what this new information means.
