Taking a low dose of aspirin every other day may lower women's risk of colorectal cancer. <br></span></p>
    There's another health benefit from taking aspirin. A new study shows taking a low dose aspirin every other day may lower women's risk of colorectal cancer. Researchers looked at nearly 40,000 healthy women taking either low dose 100mg of aspirin or a placebo. They found women saw an even larger benefit 10 years after starting the drug. Scientists did not see any difference when it came to aspirin and other types of cancer. Aspirin prevents inflammation that's believed to promote the growth of cancer cells.
    Doctors caution there are risk, women in the study had higher rates of stomach bleeding and ulcers. While this particular study did not find aspirin to help with other cancers, previous studies have shown that aspirin might reduce the risk of breast, prostate, and lung cancer. Researchers say this new study could influence future recommendations.
