To All the Ladies

Ladies, please read this article. I don't want anything to happen to any of you.
Nearly all American women are in danger of heart disease or stroke and should be more aggressive about lowering their risk — including asking their doctors about daily aspirin use, the American Heart Association said today in new guidelines.

It is the first time guidelines have urged all women to consider aspirin for preventing strokes, although specialists warn that it can cause ulcers and dangerous bleeding. They said it is probably not a good idea for young women with no big health problems.
Sincerely, this is new medical advice.

This certainly isn't 'new medical' advice to us Down Under. My brother was taking an aspirin daily for years for that express purpose and then he took Cartia....and then he died from a vicious throat cancer...but his heart was in great condition...and he didn't suffer a stroke, either!

How come this old advice is all of a sudden 'new' advice?

It's new for women, Lee. Not for men. It's been known for men for two decades.

Well, it's been known to both sexes down here, Don.
