European guidelines on the prevention of CVD do not recommend aspirin for individuals free from CVD due to the increased risk of major bleeding.(2) This advice was subsequently supported by results in moderate risk patients (ARRIVE),(3) diabetic patients (ASCEND),(4) and in people over 70 (ASPREE) which demonstrated that modest reductions in CVD risk were outweighed by the increased bleeding hazard.(5)
Compared to people without CVD who did the most exercise, the increased risk was 87 per cent and 45 per cent for people with CVD who had a totally sedentary lifestyle and for those who did 0-499 MET-mins/week, respectively.

But European guidelines released in 2016 stated that the drug is not recommended for primary prevention, and the US also imposed stricter regulations in administering aspirin to individuals that are at high-risk for CVD. This means that those who do not have any CVD are not advised to take aspirin as a preventive measure as it can increase the risk of bleeding.
