The purpose of this research study in the article was originally trying to determine whether or not asprin helps to prevent heart attacks and strokes. Through the process they discovered that the coating used on the pills may reduce the effectiveness of asprin. Regardless of the overall findings it is important to note that part of the research has been funded by Bayer Asprin which would make a person wonder if the final results of the study are biased in favor of asprin's link to preventing heart attacks and strokes because Bayer has a lot to gain and potentially lose depending on the outcome.
