An aspirin a day is now recommended by many health professionals. ASA is thought to be helpful not only with heart disease, but could be helpful in protecting somewhat against a number of diseases and afflictions.So, I thought I'd give it a try, but it seems I'm a little too sensitive to the little ubiquitous pills. A week or so of cramps stopped only after yet another week of avoiding aspirin, and has me hesitant to try even a milder dose, or coated/finer grain versions.Apparently some people are more sensitive than others. But I was wondering if there might not also be a dietary connection.Since aspirin is made out of willow bark it is called a "salicylate", but then so are many other fruits and vegetables which come under the general heading of "dietary salicylates".Seems it might not be that much of a stretch to expect anyone with high dietary salicylates consumption would be more prone to such a sensitivity, but I've been unable to find any research supporting such a hypothesis, and was wondering if anyone else here has trouble with aspirin.http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0887/is_n6_v16/ai_19575758
