A renowned Neurological Surgeon, Prof Temitayo Shokunbi has cautioned Nigerians against  indiscriminate intake of aspirin, commonly known as blood thinner because of  its negative consequences on health.

Prof Shokunbi  said while it may be advisable for those who had suffered stroke to take aspirin, he however  warned that those who take the drug as a preventative measure against stroke without a previous history of stroke or heart disease  run the  risk of having complications of the drug.

Such complications according to the medical expert  includes bleeding from the stomach, rectum and bleeding in the brain which is more likely in people with high blood pressure.
