London: Research has shown that aspirin could be a cheap and simple way to prevent dementia and cancer.

Scientists said that preliminary tests have proven that the common pill which is already routinely taken to protect against coronary disease, heart attacks and stroke, may prevent the two chronic illnesses as well, the Daily Express reported.

Research team leader Professor Mark Nelson added that the study will start next summer and results are expected by 2018.
