Daily low-dose aspirin linked to slower cognitive decline

A study that included almost 700 older women found those who took a daily low-dose aspirin demonstrated less cognitive decline than those who did not follow the regimen, often used to help prevent heart attacks. University of Gothenburg researchers wrote in the journal BMJ Open that the effects were more pronounced the longer the aspirin regimen was followed but that taking the drug did not affect the risk of developing full-blown dementia. A researcher cautioned that the study did not prove a causal link and said more research is needed before any recommendations can be made to women regarding aspirin use for cognitive function.
