Daily aspirin might reduce cancer risk
A series of new studies suggest taking a daily dose of aspirin may help prevent, and possibly fight, cancer. Dr. Nancy Snyderman reports.

Taking aspirin once a day may help prevent cancer, and perhaps even in some cases treat it, a growing body of research suggests.
A new study finds that people who took a low-dose aspirin daily for at least three years were 25 percent less likely to develop cancer than people who didn't take it.
Aspirin also reduced the risk of death from cancer by nearly 40 percent after five years, the researchers said.
The reduced risk of death may be due in part to a decrease in cancer's ability to spread to other organs. In a second study, researchers found a daily dose of aspirin led to a 36 percent reduction in the risk of being diagnosed with cancer that spread to other organs.
