Aspirin foundation propaganda
Aspirin, one of the first drugs to come into common usage, is still the mostly widely used in the world - approximately 35,000 metric tonnes are produced and consumed annually, enough to make over 100 billion standard aspirin tablets every year.

Dr. Cheery- natural aspirin
White willow bark is the original source for salicylic acid, or salicin, the active ingredient in aspirin before aspirin was made synthetically. As a result, white willow bark has the same effect on the body as aspirin but without any of the adverse side effects, such as stomach upset. Studies have also identified several other components of white willow bark that have antioxidant, fever-reducing, antiseptic and immune-boosting effects.
The use of willow bark dates back to the time of Hippocrates (400 B.C.) when patients were advised to chew on the bark to reduce fever and inflammation.
