Anyone buying Asprin in Japan pays around yen per tablet, if anything it’ll make a hole in your wallet.

but the risks don't outweigh the benefits for most other folks

Should that not be the other way round?

The Lancet also had a recent article that indicated benefit for medium/low weight people (up to 60kg) for the low dose, but requiring a higher dose for larger people (duh) to obtain the same benefit. This article didn't cover this aspect, so it may be based upon a different Lancet article.

One yen per tablet, over a year would still be only 365 yen. I don’t see how that can be classed as making a hole in your wallet? About £2.53!

Tackling other causative factors will have far more impact.

Nothing but a Big Pharma SCAM. Don't be so gullible!
