In an article titled “Study finds aspirin protects against colon cancer,” Kate Kelland from Reuters, reports that German researchers have linked aspirin to the prevention of colon cancer. Ms Kelland writes:
“A daily dose of aspirin can prevent cancer in people with a genetic disorder that increases their risk of developing the disease, scientists said on Monday.
The finding could also have important implications for the wider population, although more research is needed and unraveling the connection will take some time since the benefits of aspirin were only seen after several years.”
The article concludes with a researcher’s opinion that “aspirin hits faulty stem cells before they mutate into pre-cancerous cells.”

Please remember that you shouldn’t be ingesting aspirin if you are taking blood thinners.
