Can aspirin reduce bowel cancer risk? "Taking two aspirin a week could protect against cancer," reports the Daily Telegraph. The Express suggests we should take it daily.
In a large study, researchers found that aspirin use twice or more per week was associated with a 3% reduction in cancer risk. However, when analysed by cancer type, there was only one significant link – for bowel cancer – with a 19% risk reduction for aspirin use.
The research seems to confirm some of Oxfords Peter Rothwells' findings.
