Healthcast: Aspirin may help reduce risk of certain cancers

A daily aspirin might help cut the risk of certain cancers.

Researchers in the UK pooled data from about 200 studies and found taking Aspirin for at least five years, but no more than 10 years, can cut the rates of bowel, stomach, and esophageal cancers by 30 to 40 percent.

This applies to people between the ages of 50 and 65.

Experts stressed patients should talk with their doctors before they begin Aspirin therapy.
