Asprin?

Has anyone else heard about the benefits of long term low dose Asprin for Cancer prevention? I read a report which came out right at the end of my treatment that taken over long periods it reduced the spread of cancer through metastasis by around 50%!

 

I spoke to my Oncologist at my follow up and she said 'go for it' and ive been taking it every day since. I just wondered if anyone else had any thoughts on it or feedback from their MDT?

I hadn't heard of this, how much are you taking daily?

I have heard Asprin does have other benefits too, I may just do some googling ;-) though to be honest I'm rubbish at taking a vitamin each day let alone anything else!

Hi, I am taking 75mg a day and take it with my HRT so I dont forget! You should find some articles on Google. The report was in the Lancet I think around June time? It was also in the popular press so you should find an article on it somewhere! x

Hi Lu-Lu,

after I had cancer treatment I wondered what I could do for myself to stay cancer-free.

My hobby is eating, so I looked up what you should eat, and what you should avoid, to stay healthy.

I found some websites especially about cancer, see below.

The advantage of trying to eat right, is that it also keeps you healthy in general. While aspirin is a medicine, which means there are side effects, especially if you take it daily.

It's up to you what you decide to do: I myself stick to eating lots of veg and fruit, and very little processed food. That is not always easy! But once you're in the habit, it's not too hard either. My treatment was in 2006 and I don't have to come back for checkups anymore.

Though, because the chemoradio left me with malabsorption, for me good food is not enough: I have to take vitamin and mineral supplements as well. Before I did that, I got all sorts of minor complaints, which luckily have disappeared now.

These are the sites I like:
