April 22, 2015

PHILADELPHIA — Regular, long-term aspirin use was associated with a reduced risk for cancer, especially gastrointestinal cancers, according to prospective study results presented at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting.

Although previous studies have suggested daily aspirin reduces the overall risk for cancer, data from the Women’s Health study demonstrated alternate-day, low-dose aspirin only reduced the risk for colorectal cancer, according to study background.
