Low-dose aspirin of little benefit to most

Lancet study warns against the one-size fits all approach

Low-dose aspirin is ineffective for most people taking it to help prevent vascular events, a Lancet analysis of 120,000 people reveals.

For those weighing more than 70kg (which is 80% of men and nearly 50% of women), low-dose (75-100mg) aspirin is unlikely to do much good.
