Why's in Medicine: Often the why's are not answerable. These type of questions are great for intellectual discussion, but there are not many that are actually answerable. There is just the fact of this is the way it is. This is why we use Aspirin as routinely as we do in prescription medicine. Notice that cardiologists do not recommend nsaids for those with cardiovascular risk.
