According to a new research study, published in a respected medical journal called The Lancet, aspirin helped reduce death rates from seven different cancers.
New data strongly supports the concept that prolonged long term use of aspirin can reduce deaths from many common cancers by 20%.
Specific cancers the study singled out included oesophageal, pancreatic, brain, lung, stomach, colorectal, and prostate cancer.
According to the study, someone needs to take aspirin for five years or more in order to achieve measurable results.

Aspirin may not cure more than a mild headache, but it certainly offers a lot of additional health benefits, doesn’t it?
