Which just goes to show you that people need to be better educated on how to compare the risks and benefits of the substances that they consume. We have a good understanding of what ASA does, and a good understanding of what APAP does. It is not beyond a person of normal intelligence to weigh the benefits and risks of each.

x86 assembly is not that difficult to understand. You MOV, CMP, and JMP to memory addresses according to the values in the processors registors. My guess is that exponetially more exploits are introduced when what you MOV and CMP and where you JMP to is abstracted away than when it is not.

ASA, or aspirin, is first line treatment for heart attacks and all hospitals have it in stock, and plavix is prescribed a lot more often than warfarin for anti-platelet therapy. Research aspirin's side effects and you will understand why it just isn't handed out willy-nilly. If ASA were a new drug coming to market it is doubtful that it would be available over the counter.
