It was allover the News on March 21. 2012: ONE ASPIRIN A DAY CAN HELP PREVENT OR EVEN TREAT CANCER? We all know what aspirin is good for: headache, pain, reduces fever, anti-inflammatory, prevents heart attacks, strokes, blood clot. And now cancer prevention! I knew, that there was more to the little pill….. One of the studies shows that taking a low dose of aspirin (75 or 81 mg) has a 14% lower risk of death from any cause. (???) This is very interesting! So let’s take twin sisters, one is taken aspirin every day and the second none. But oterwise their lives are much the same. First sister lives to be 100 years old, and the other only 86. Well…. You got the picture. They say,that aspirin may not only prevent cancer, but slows its growth and spreding to the other organs. But of course, there are some side effects: gastrointestinal ulcers, stomach bleeding. You have to be very careful, don’t overdose. So, shortly speaking, people who take aspirin may have lower risk of dying from cancer (or heart attack, stroke, blood clot). Good enough for me. I’m going to take one right now (81 mg) with a glass of good water. Cheers!
