Heart Disease & Aspirin – How it Works

  Aspirin:  
     interferes with blood clotting action - platelets cells build up at wound - seals opening - stop bleeding
     causes the same action within vessels to heart and brain - atherosclerosis - fatty deposits burst  blood clot quickly form - blocks  artery – no blood to heart/ brain = heart attack/ stroke.
Aspirin therapy reduces clumping action of platelets — possibly preventing heart attack and stroke.   
The approved dosage for heart attack prevention is 75 to 325 mg.

An aspirin regimen could help reduce the risk of a first heart attack in patients with stable or unstable angina. In patients suffering from unstable angina, one study showed the risk for heart attack was reduced by 51%.

 Stopping daily aspirin therapy may increase risk of heart attack/stroke.

Tylenol and Aspirin Increases Risk of Kidney Failure.

Question: What's a body to do?
Answer: Garlic.

Cardiovascular disease
Studies report that garlic consumption may decrease the progression of cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease is associated with several factors, including raised serum total cholesterol, raised low density lipoprotein (LDL), and increased LDL oxidation (free radical damage), increased platelet aggregation (clumping), hypertension, and smoking. Garlic may help decrease LDL and total cholesterol levels while raising good cholesterols (high density lipoprotein, or HDL), decreasing platelet aggregation (helps the blood flow more easily), and decreasing blood pressure. Recently, garlic was also found to decrease two other markers of cardiovascular disease, homocysteine and C-reactive protein.
Garlic may also reduce blood pressure. Numerous studies have reported that oral garlic is associated with reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressure. http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/garlic-000245.htm
