TAKING AN ASPIRIN A DAY

Many doctors recommend an 81 mg aspirin a day to their patients for heart health. I was surprised by recent research that found adults age 50 to 65 who took approximately 75 mg of aspirin a day for 10 years may significantly reduce their risk of developing and dying of the following cancers - stomach, colon, and esophageal. The study found it took 3 years for the benefit to kick in and at least 5 years for the death rates to fall. 

Maybe there is more than one reason to take that aspirin every night.
