LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - Chinese researchers have discovered a possible link between aspirin and a reduced incidence of cancer in a study involving 600,000 participants.

People who take an aspirin a day for seven years are 47 percent less likely to develop esophageal and liver cancers. They are also 38 percent less likely to develop gastric cancer, 34 percent less likely to develop pancreatic cancer, and 24 percent less likely to develop colorectal cancer and leukemia.


The aspirin had no impact on breast, bladder, kidney or multiple meyloma.

Aspirin is known to reduce the risk of death if taken following a heart attack.

Doctors generally do not ask patients to take aspirin over the long term because it has been linked to bleeding in the gut in some patients, but for patients who may be at risk for cancer, it could be a sound recommendation.

Individuals should consult with their doctor before adopting an aspirin regimen or changing their medication habits.
