Monday, January 21, 2013

An aspirin a day is part of many people's heart health regiment.

It's one the most widely used medications in the world but there might be a price to pay.

A study suggests regular aspirin use is associated with age-related macular degeneration, which is a major cause of blindness in older adults.

The study, published in the journal "Jama Internal Medicine" looked at the correlation between regular aspirin use over 15 years to age-related macular degeneration.

There was a higher rate of degeneration in regular Aspirin users.
