(CNN) - It's one of the most well-known tenets of modern medicine: An aspirin a day keeps the doctor away.

Instead, it may cause them serious harm.The primary study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial -- considered the gold standard for clinical trials.

Mr. Turnbull, who looked tired after a weekend of negotiating with colleagues, told reporters Monday morning that the energy policy bill, known as the National Energy Guarantee, would not be introduced in the House of Representatives because there was not enough support. “We are not going to propose legislation purely for the purpose of it being defeated,” he said.
