DESCRIPTION: Should the active ingredient in aspirin be considered an essential vitamin?
If you missed the first two videos in this series, I discuss the pros and cons in Should We All Take Aspirin to Prevent Heart Disease? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/should-we-all-take-aspirin-to-prevent-heart-disease) and Should We All Take Aspirin to Prevent Cancer? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/should-we-all-take-aspirin-to-prevent-cancer).
The drug-like anti-inflammatory power of certain plant foods may make them a risky proposition during pregnancy. See Caution: Anti-inflammatory Foods in the Third Trimester (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/caution-anti-inflammatory-foods-in-the-third-trimester/).
Herbs and spices don’t just have some of the most anti-inflammatory properties, but also the most antioxidant power. See Antioxidants in a Pinch (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/antioxidants-in-a-pinch/).
