An Aspirin a Day May Take Your Vision & Hearing Away

Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatories Drugs (NSAID's) are widely used for pain relief, inflammation reduction, and, in the case of aspirin, cardiovascular health.  But recent evidence surfaced by The Beaver Dam Eye Study showed "...regular aspirin use 10 years prior was associated with a small but statistically significant increase in the risk of incident late and neovascular age-related macular degeneration."  Additionally, from the Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, MA, a study of over 90,000 participant showed that the regular use of ibuprofen and acetaminophen (not aspirin) was statistically linked with an increased risk of hearing loss. ~ajcc See also https://www.facebook.com/AndersonChiro
