Hi, welcome to another Healthy Heart Minute. My name is Dr Warrick Bishop and welcome. Well, we use it for headaches, we use it for aches and pains, and we use it if we've got a fever temperature. But where does aspirin fit if you want to take it for your heart? Well, there is literature out there that guides us. And to a large degree, we know that if you're a high risk, if you've had a heart attack or a stent or a stroke or bypass grafting, then aspirin is for you. And we've got 20 years of research to support that. It's nowhere near as clear that it's beneficial if you haven't had a problem or if you're at low risk. If you're after more information, I've done a podcast on that very topic and that link is just below. So please click on the link and learn a little bit more. Thanks so much for listening. As always, I wish you the very best till next time. Look after yourself and please don't die from a heart attack. Goodbye.
