AnÂ 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. Â 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?
