Researchers: Aspirin Could Cut Cancer Risk
U.S. -- An aspirin every other day cuts a woman’s risk of cancer, according to a new study from Women’s Health.
Women who took low-dose aspirin on alternate days saw a 20% drop in their risk of developing colorectal cancer.
However, researchers said that they are not ready to recommend this type of aspirin regimen for all women, because it comes with some side effects including gastrointestinal bleeding.
Other studies have shown similar results in men, but this was the first study that looked at the issue in women.
