Aspirin & Lung Cancer

Posted: Updated:

An aspirin a day can keep lung cancer away?

A recent study by Chinese researchers found that women who took at least a couple of aspirin a week were less likely to develop lung cancer.

The results back up a number of previous studies that linked regular aspirin use to lower risks of certain cancers, including colon, prostate and esophageal cancers.

Aspirin; however, is not yet recommended for cancer prevention.

For now, the recommended way to prevent lung cancer is not to smoke.
