A recent study in the Journal of Women’s Health  showed only 41 percent of those who met the recommendation for primary prevention (before heart attack or stroke) reported taking aspirin on a daily basis, the researchers found.

Additionally, only 48 percent of those who met the criteria for secondary prevention (after heart attack or stroke) responded “yes” to daily aspirin use. Why don’t women take the easiest form of prevention for heart disease there is – a daily aspirin?
