An Aspirin a Day Keeps the Cancer Away
An unfunded study published in the medical journal The Lancet indicates that taking daily low-dose aspirin results in:
- a 24% reduction in cancer deaths after 3 years
- a 37% reduction in cancer deaths after 5 years
This gets even more interesting when you consider that cancer kills approximately 7.6 million people every year. If we extrapolate those cancer reducing percentages to that very ugly global death by cancer number, we could end up saving:
- 1.8 million people after 3 years
- 2.8 million people after 5 years
How cool is that?
