According to a new study, taking aspirin every day may significantly reduce the risk of many cancers and prevent tumors from spreading!
The best part of this is how cheap and widely available aspirin may actually be a badass tool against cancer!
Seriously, you can get aspirin everywhere — you just need a regimen.
The only problem is that a regimen can cause gastro-intestinal bleeding — and there's an argument that the side effects outweigh the benefits in already healthy patients.
Get this, though: During the trials, after three years of daily aspirin use, the risk of developing cancer was reduced by almost 25 percent when compared with those not taking aspirin. After five years, the risk of dying of cancer was reduced by 37 percent among those taking aspirin! Wow!
Here's what one doctor said:
“What really jumps out at you in terms of prevention is the striking 75 percent reduction in esophageal cancer and a 40 to 50 percent reduction in colorectal cancer, which is the most common cancer right now.In terms of prevention, anyone with a family history would be sensible to take aspirin.”
But, like everything, more studying should be done before anyone starts up a treatment. At least talk to your doctor!
This is really encouraging, though!
