Aspirin was found to have anti-cancer effects in a large study of 25000 people, published in the Lancet (a British medical journal of high repute.)
This is consistent with much previous data confirming the preventive effects for aspirin on colon cancer.
Aspirin, 100 years old (invented the same year as Heroine…by Bayer, Inc.), continues to have a plethera of positive effects.
Of course, not everyone should take aspirin due to the bleeding issues and potential for stomach ulcer. If you have specific concerns with these particular conditions, then aspirin is not best, but generally speaking, the anti-inflammatory effects and the blood thinning effects of aspirin continue to provide a general healthy effect and is worthwhile in most adults.
