Aspirin may be beneficial to over-40s29th April 2009
A study from Cancer Research UK and featured in the journal Lancet Oncology has suggested that people who take aspirin in their 40s could cut the risk of cancer later in life.
Experts, who reviewed existing research, said taking the drug at an age before cancer usually develops, and for ten years would maximise its potential to prevent the disease. However, while aspirin has been linked to a reduced risk of some cancers and heart disease it is also connected with a raised risk of ulcers and internal bleeding.
