My dentist takes a daily baby aspirin & Vitamin D

My dentist has taken a daily baby aspirin for 20-25 years because of research showing reduction in colon cancer (his father died of colan cancer). Would that research be from CPS II data which demonstrated a decreased risk of colon cancer in people who take aspirin regularly?...

  • Thun, M. J., Namboodiri, M. M. & Heath, C. W. Jr. Aspirin use and reduced risk of fatal colon cancer. N. Engl. J. Med. 325, 1593–1596 (1991). (cited in Ann M. Bode and Zigang Dong, 508, July 2009, Volume 9,
He also takes a Vitamin D spray daily (as a dentist he works out of the sun!)
