Low-Dose Aspirin May Reduce Colon Cancer Risk
Date:9/16/2010

id. "What is less clear and still remains somewhat controversial is what is the minimum effective dose in terms of prevention."

Because aspirin can have potentially harmful side effects, organizations such as the American Cancer Society don't recommend taking aspirin to ward off colorectal cancer.

"Decisions about whether to take aspirin should be made together with a physician and should be based on balancing the heart disease prevention benefits against the risks of side effects," Jacobs said.

Worldwide, colorectal cancer ranks second as a cause of cancer deaths, killing nearly half a million people a year, according to background information in the study.

Jacobs also stressed the adults should continue to get screened for colorectal cancer. "Colorectal screening tests can result in the detection and removal of colorectal polyps before they ever turn into cancer. The American Cancer Society strongly recommends all men and women 50 or older get a colorectal cancer screening test."
