According to several medical studies, experts have recommended that older adults should take daily low doses of aspirin to help prevent heart attacks and strokes.

There is new research saying that healthy older adults shouldn't take aspirin any longer.

Experts say that adults don't need to take the daily aspirin anymore because it's much easier to directly treat the risk factors for heart attacks and strokes such as hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol.

According to WILX-News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association announced the guidelines Sunday.

The guidelines say doctors may consider aspirin for certain older high risk patients including those having trouble lowering their cholesterol or managing blood sugar.
