Cancer & Aspirin

We've been saying for years that an Aspirin a day could keep the doctor away, now it seems that may be true for a lot more than just protecting your arteries.

A study of nearly a 150,000 men and women for 10 years found a strong link between a daily dose of adult strength aspirin for more than 5 years and the reduction of certain types of cancers.

Specifically, they found a 15% drop in overall cancer rates and a drop in Colon and Prostate Cancers as well. But for some reason the aspirin effect was not as strong in women as it was in men.
