Regarding the aspirin thing, the crux is "For patients with no prior history of heart disease the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding outweighs any benefit." And, "The change comes after a large international study found that even at low doses, long-term use of aspirin may be harmful — without providing any benefit — for older people who have not already had a heart attack or stroke."
Yes, I awoke this morning to excellent air quality!! They were able to put the fires out overnight. I live roughly 30 miles NW of the fires so it never was too bad for us. But yesterday mid-morning it was eerie to look at the sun through the black haze high up. It was almost like being in a solar eclipse!
Wasn't it a baby aspirin or at any rate a low dosage? My wife was told to take low dose for clot prevention (I assume) after she had her knee scoped about 6 weeks ago - but only for 3 weeks total.
I'll give the article a look later - I can't get it to open here (office).
How is your air quality now - hope things improve soon, now that the fires are out! My daughter said it was very bad for several days - she sent us photos from her office downtown - looked ominous.
Yes the 81mg variety.
Funny, just based upon family history and "borderline" blood history, my doctor at one time had me taking niacin, aspirin and fish oil daily. I stopped taking all of that before any of the recent studies reversed the common beliefs of their benefit.
Recently a friend of mine convinced me to research the benefits of oregano oil. He swears by it and claims it has noticeably lowered his BP and Cholesterol. So I am giving that a try after asking my doctor about it (his response...I doubt it will help "I don't see how it could hurt"). Will find out in a couple months. Once a day just put one drop in about 1/2 cup of water and drink it. Even diluted like that it leaves a burning feeling on your lips.

boomslang: Ed, Derrick may have coined it. Just like somebody coined sensistraw inserts.

Galgolfer: I called it Strawsicore. LOL.

nrjyzr: As for the Toaster of Death, there was even a haiku about it. Don't remember the haiku, unfortunately

hardpan: I used "toaster on a stick" and Strawsicore in the last week talking to customers, weird

boomslang: Golf equipment has changed a lot. I haven't followed the trend. Still playing my Ping G2 driver and blades. LOL

Galgolfer: I agree with you Hax that Sensicore (or any vibration dampening) changes the way a club feels but if you've got pain they can really help.

bumblebees: I have Greg's Toaster on a stick. I bought it from him at Bethpage if I recall correctly. At the same time he 'leant' me the matching 3 wood which I still have as he died a couple of weeks later. If I ever make it out to another G tourney, I'll bring them.
