Taking pills are short-term fixes for most systemic problems like heart disease.

Eat right (more veggies), move a little more, and lose a little weight is what my doctor said. Seems that losing 5% of your body weigh has huge health benefits for people who are overweight. That includes reducing the risks from heart attacks, diabetes, and lots of other systemic problems.

Diabetic 1 seriously need the baby aspirin but so ridiculously expensive in this country. I get them on the US bases super cheaply. Buying stateside cheap also.

‘’What’s really important to know is that evidence changes over time.’’

Read: "What we told you in the past was wrong." So encouraging to know and to instill confidence in what we are being told NOW. Life is a crap-shoot, at best and 'long life' a delusion because however long one lives, it's NOT long enough... The best thing for any of this is learn how to and to do your own research if you really care, and, if you don't, live however you want to and take 'recommendations' with whatever faith you think necessary and don't STRESS because that WILL kill you...or, at least give you bleeding ulcers aspirin or no aspirin...
