Daily aspirin 'reduces cancer risk', study finds

People aged between 50 and 65 who take aspirin every day for 10 years could cut their risk of bowel cancer by 30% and cancers of the throat and stomach by 25%, according to the study published in the Annals of Oncology. Aspirin is an antiplatelet, which means it reduces the risk of clots forming in your blood. Platelets may also protect cancer cells in the body, and it has been suggested aspirin's effect on them may hinder this process. Taking aspirin every day comes with a serious health warning as it can cause serious side effects such as ulcers and bleeding from the stomach, particularly in elderly people.

Chemist shows hidden truth about aspirin. Bayer didn’t “invent” aspirin.

Chemist shows hidden truth about aspirin

Mother Nature did, sorta. Today, most people think of aspirin as a harmless wonder drug – able to stop pain, fever and even prevent heart attack and stroke, without risk. Not true. History proves it… Thousands of years ago, humans witnessed injured bears (not the Chicago Bears) gnawing on the bark of white willow trees. After a long night of drinking away his frustrations with people who talk more than they think, he decided to test his theory. Despite his gluttonous indulgence, the crushing pressure on his head was released.

Dangerous Doses. The worldwide counterfeit drug market is huge and growing.

Dangerous Doses

The Center for Medicine in the Public Interest estimates that in 2010 the trade reaped around $75 billion, a 90 percent increase since 2005. Over the same period, the Pharmaceutical Security Institute (PSI), of which one of us is president, documented a huge increase in discoveries of counterfeit pharmaceutical products. In 2005, it recorded over 1,000 incidents; in 2010, it recorded more than twice that. The World Health Organization previously estimated that as much as 15 percent of the medicine in circulation around the world could be fake. These drugs occupy a wide spectrum of medications, and their quality is suspect; they can be mislabeled, tainted, adulterated, ineffective, or, in the worst cases, all of the above.

Given the lack of systematic, worldwide reporting, understanding the true scope of this public health problem is difficult. Read more at at Foreign Affairs' Special Report: Global Public Health. Register.
