    Well Family...the verdict is in and the case is closed and confirmed, taking as little as one little 81 mg aspirin a day(baby aspirin) does work wonders with Strokes, and now, preventing/reducing Cancer.

    MONDAY, Dec. 6 (HealthDay News) -- Long-term use of a daily low-dose aspirin dramatically cuts the risk of dying from a wide array of cancers, a new investigation reveals...At five years out, death due to gastrointestinal cancers had sunk by 54 percent among those patients taking low-dose aspirin.

    My oncologist started me on low dose

    He told me that for breast cancer, the chances of low dose inhibiting a recurrence of the original cancer would be reduced by approx. 50% so...he also talked up the benefits, re: heart, too.


    I've been on a daily diet of one low dose aspirin tab alongside of an Arimidex tab since October, this year. Four years, ten months to go.


    So far, so good (I think).


    One Love, and PEACE

    It can lead to other things like ulcers

    My dad used to take daily aspirin because he used to get bad headaches all the time and got ulcers...

    Sister Fieldpea,

    That's good to know along with the first information you shared with me awhile back, and its good you are back and posting up in the forums again. Likewise, its been about 6 yrs. straight for me on the 81 mg dosage of aspirin, after learning of its value in reducing the chance of heart attack and stroke.

    According to the posted study, it takes about 5 yrs for maximum benefit to be reached and we are there:)...tc my sister friend.

    This is really great information for us Black people! Thank you!

    yes. i rely on aspirins from time to time as well! And to find out that it as a connection to preventing cancer is just amazing!

    You know I've been wanting to share some information too about aspirin in response to something posted in another site for awhile now, and i think i will try to compose something asap because it might show a correlation to this study, and it might help Black people to understand how this system has stolen vital knowledge from the anicent man and has caused us to have to depend upon them for healing of which ultimately they refused for the most part.

    I have come to find out that alot of ancient knowledge about medicines and remedies and preventive medicines are connected to cetain people's religious cultures and practices and has been written down in such a way that when people conducted their lives accordingly, they remained so very healthy and immune to many susceptibilities. But when they broke those customs and were taken or driven away from their lands, their culture disrupted, so was their knowledge and ability to get certain nutrients that correlates to their health and life spans being cut short.

    In the Spirit of Update,



    ... and something to consider ...




    Aspirin risks may outweigh benefits in healthy adults


    By Kathleen Raven

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Healthy adults who take daily aspirin to stave off heart disease may be inviting more harm than benefit, according to a new review of past studies.
    Adults face a crush of conflicting health messages about aspirin and the role it plays as a preventive medicine.
    In an attempt to bring clarity to the topic, UK researchers sifted through the most recent evidence from nine randomized controlled trials - which are considered medicine's gold standard - and other systematic reviews of such trials. They found a total of 27 studies between 2008 and 2012 that fell within their criteria.
