Can Aspirin Treat/Prevent Cancer? New Study Released

Three new studies out today add to growing evidence that taking aspirin every day can help prevent, and possibly treat, cancer.

Previous studies had shown that a daily dose of aspirin reduces the long-term risk of death from cancer, but the new research, led by Peter Rothwell of Britain’s Oxford University, has shown that it also has a short-term benefit in preventing the disease.

Also, the new studies found that it will reduce the likelihood that cancers will spread to other organs by about 40 to 50 percent.

There is already an intense debate about taking aspirin every day, however, because it increases the risk of internal bleeding in the stomach. Some people take the drug daily because it reduces the risk of blood clots forming and can therefore protect against heart attacks and strokes.
