Another advantage of aspirin, a miracle medicine that has been used for over a century, is that it can help to prevent colon cancer.
Aspirin prevents cancer cells from developing and forces them to die naturally. If some of these cells escape the process, they can develop into tumours and cancer.
The use of aspirin in this process has been demonstrated to be quite beneficial, particularly in gastric and intestinal malignancies, where it can help inhibit cancer cells from spreading.
Dr. Dominic Wooders, a public health specialist at the University of California, Berkeley, explained, "Aspirin inhibits the proliferation of cancer cells and has an effect on their birth rates and deaths." On the one hand, it increases cell death; on the other hand, it stops malignant tumours from spreading.
Another research expert, Natalia Kumarova, believes that aspirin may help prevent cancer cells from becoming sick and detrimental to the body, based on Darwin's theory of evolution. As a result, colon cancer slows down and may even prevent the cell from changing into cancer in the first place. That's why aspirin's position is so intriguing.
Many persons with genetic disorders were enlisted in this study, as they could have been diagnosed with various types of cancer as a result of Lynch syndrome. For two years, they were divided into two groups and given 600 mg of aspirin daily. It was discovered two years later that it could cut the risk of colon cancer by 63%. Other evidence and investigations support this theory.
Experts say they're still trying to figure out what's going on, but it's certainly given aspirin a new benefit.
