    This new study is a good follow up on two previous studies I posted indicating that aspirin actually protects from death due to the two major issues it is supposed to be causing - i.e. GI and brain bleeding.
    Aspirin Actually Lowers Risk Of Bleeding In The Brain
    Aspirin Reduces Death / Complications From GI Bleeding

    This new study once again confirms that aspirin is really not as dangerous as mainstream medicine is trying to make it appear. While the study found that aspirin did slightly increase GI bleeding events, that was harmless.

    "...The perception that aspirin raises the risk for deadly gastrointestinal bleeding appears to be a bad rap, a new study suggests. The study found that although low-dose aspirin prescribed to prevent cardiovascular illness is linked to GI bleeds, these events typically are mild and easily treated. While aspirin is linked to cerebral bleeding, which can be debilitating and in some cases fatal, those risks are more than offset by the number of ischemic strokes and cancers the drug prevents, according to the researchers. “Aspirin has been shown to lower the incidence and mortality of vascular disease and cancer, and has the potential to play an important global role in the protection of health and reduction of disease,” the researchers wrote. “However, the promotion of its use in the clinic is seriously impeded by the perception of unacceptable toxicity, in particular gastrointestinal bleeding.”

    "...“Gastrointestinal bleeds constitute the majority of the adverse events caused by aspirin, however there is no evidence that the overall frequency of fatal GI bleeds is increased by aspirin,” the researchers reported. They presented their findings at the 2016 Digestive Disease Week (abstract Tu1072)."

    It's interesting that cayenne(being very high in salicylates)both thins and thickens the blood, depending on what is needed. This is why using whole food medicinally is generally prefered...

    When my eight year old son ran over my foot years ago(yes, you read that right!! He turned the key to shut off the irritating noise the door makes when left open when motor is on) and the car hopped on my foot while I was rearranging things in the back seat so my daughter could sleep, I used willow bark(the tree bark aspirin is made from) for pain and inflammation It worked! No side effects!

    So they confirmed that aspirin can kill you by causing cerebral bleeding?

    No they did not. They are quoting other studies. Also, in that very post is a link that found aspirin actually decreased risk of hemorrhaging stroke due to ruptured aneurysm. And here is another one that found those reported bleeding risks to be exaggerated.
