In brief: If...

There has been recommendations that for people after certain age to take a daily aspirin.
However, major medical authorities based on recent research have found that unless you are at risk, in other words, suffer of heart disease or conditions that put you at high risk of having this problem it is not necessary. Discuss it with your doctor on your next visit.
