More research touts aspirin for cancer prevention

Three new studies published in the journals The Lancet and The Lancet Oncology on Tuesday add to the evidence that a daily dose of ASA, or acetylsalicylic acid, might be able to prevent cancer as well as stop it from spreading.
Carolyn Gotay, a professor from UBC’s School of Population & Public Health, says it appears that prolonged use is important to the desired effect. “It’s clear you really need to take aspirin every day for a long time. This is not something you can take now and again — you have to make a commitment.”
