What we have to say about your health and well being

Mar 2016
I read in the press that you should take an aspirin every day to stop bowel cancer. Is that true?

This was recent research that suggested there was areduced risk of bowel cancer when people took aspirin for5 years.There were a few questions over the study because it wasn’tclear how much aspirin to take and why there was a reductionin the cancer.

You also need to watch with research that where peopleanswer questions they might not be giving the correct answer.However there have been other studies also suggesting areduction in bowel cancer so yes it probably is true.But before you reach for an aspirin tablet you need to beaware of the real dangers to your stomach. Aspirin can causebleeding and ulceration.

That’s why many people are givenanother medicine such as omeprazole to protect the stomachif they need to take aspirin prescribed by the doctor forprevention of heart attacks or strokes.If you are thinking of taking aspirin then best have a word withyour doctor first.
