1. Aspirins deaden pain and so bring relief, but by taking them indiscriminately, there is a possible risk that more serious medical symptoms will go unnoticed as the pain dies down.

2. Aspirins are not a cure. They are pain killers, and should be treated as such. •

3. If you have any persistent ache or pain, you should seek medical advice to find the cause, rather than dose yourself with aspirins. Doctors agree that aspirins are invaluable for the relief of headaches, menstruation pains and cold symptoms. Without aspirins, they say, their monday morning surgeries would be even more packed with patients. The only provisions is that they urge cau­tion when taking them.

4. Some elderly people take aspirins night and morning habitually — which could be dangerous unless done un­der medical supervision. This is because aspirin is acetyl-salicylic acid, which can irritate the lining of the stomach and cause slight internal bleeding. That does not mean that every time you take an aspirin you lose a few drops of blood, as some people believe. There is the risk though, that prolonged dosage will cause bleed­ing.
5. "Nobody should take more than three aspirins at a time." Never take more than six in one day unless on medical advice.

6. The best way to take aspirins, and thus minimize their effect on the stomach, is either crushed in water or during meal. However, people with stomach ulcers or tummy upsets should avoid them altogether because, of the risk of internal bleeding.

7. Like all drugs, they should certainly be kept out of the reach of children. Should a child swallow one or two aspirins, you should try to make him sick, either by sticking your fingers at the back of his throat or giving him salty water to drink. When a larger amount of aspirin is swallowed, it might be necessary for his sto­mach to be washed out.

8. Aspirins can kill, though people who take them intend­ing to commit suicide may fail because big overdoses are sometimes rejected by the stomach. At an inquest on a woman who died of aspirin poisoning, the patho­logist said that five tablets could be regarded as a "dangerous dose."

9. Apart from killing pain, aspirins reduce inflammation and therefore are invaluable in the treatment of rheu­matism. Nevertheless, rheumatism sufferers should con­sult their doctors before taking daily dose. The medical world agrees however that it is one of the "miracle" pill of our time.

10. Today salicylic acid, the chief ingredient in aspirin, is made synthetically out of a mixture of phenol and caus­tic soda which is dried in a rotating ball mill with added carbon dioxide.
