Popping an aspirin every day is likely to decrease the risk of dying from a number of common cancers, say Brit researchers.
The study found that after five years of taking aspirin, death rates fell by 34 per cent for all cancers and 54 per cent for gastrointestinal cancers. Even after 20 years, the risk of cancer death remained 20 per cent lower in groups previously allocated aspirin for all solid cancers and 35 per cent lower for gastrointestinal cancers. It took five years for the benefits to emerge for oesophageal (gullet), pancreatic, brain and some forms of lung cancer. However, it took ten years for protection to take effect in stomach and colorectal cancer and 15 years for prostate cancer. The study appeared in The Lancet medical journal. ANI
