London: Aspirin, already known to stave off a host of diseases can also reduce the risk of throat cancer, a new study has claimed. Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital Institute for Technology Assessment found that aspirin can reduce the risk of oesophageal cancer, the `Daily Mail` reported. Aspirin is already known to help avoid diseases, including arthritis, heart disease and strokes. Researchers found aspirin can reduce the risk of Barrett`s esophagus (BE), a condition which affects the cells in the throat and which is the largest known risk factor for oesophageal cancer. Previous studies have found that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), particularly aspirin, have been associated with lower death rates for oesophageal cancer.
