    A study published by the American Heart Association in 1997 estimated that if everyone who was experiencing a heart attack chewed an aspirin as soon as they began experiencing chest pain, thousands more would survive heart attacks.

    The study found an increased survival rate of 23 percent, but the heart attack patients had to chew an aspirin within one hour of developing the first symptoms.
