Housecall For Health: Aspirin & Cancer
Many people take an aspirin a day to lower their risk of developing cancer. Now there’s a new study that says it may not be as helpful as once thought.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s edition of Housecall For Health:
Past research says an aspirin a day reduces the risk of cancer, but one new study suggests the benefit may not be as great as previously thought. A prominent report published in The Lancet in March found taking a daily aspirin reduced the risk of cancer-related death by 37%. But the latest data from the American Cancer Society finds it’s just eight to 16%. Experts say taking aspirin is still beneficial.
