Traditional Physician advice

Everybody knows that aspirin is used as an analgesic to relieve minor aches and pains.  Many of us know it is used as an antipyretic to reduce fever.  Some of us know and as an anti-inflammatory medication. But, did you know that aspirin forms the ‘anti-dandruff’ ingredient in shampoos marketed for that purpose?

The active ingredient of aspirin was first scientifically classified in 1763 by Edward Stone in Oxford, England.  It is called acetylsalicylic acid (/əˌsiːtəlˌsælɨˈsɪlɨk/ ə-SEE-təl-SAL-i-SIL-ik) [ASA] in the scientific community.  Native Americans knew to chew on the bark of the White Willow tree to reduce pain and inflammation, so I imagine Mr. Stone first learned of this treatment from them, and then ‘discovered’ its’ use for the Europeans.
