Study Finds Aspirin Good For Brain
A new study indicates low doses of aspirin may protect brain function at least in women at risk for heart disease. Researchers in Sweden observed that elderly women who'd been taking a daily aspirin for at least 5 years had a slower decline in their thinking and memory skills than other women.
The patients were all at high risk of heart attacks or stroke. The aspirin was not found to alter the rate at which patients developed dementia.
