The issue of cancer prevention has been dealt with several times in the pages of the editorial staff of ProiezionidiBorsa. Unfortunately, as we know, cancer is one of the main causes of death in our country and prevention is the best thing that can be done at the moment.
In particular for colon cancer we have seen that with a correct and healthy diet it can help a lot. For example, avoiding certain foods, or knowing that some foods have particular properties and therefore could be included in the diet.
In the next few lines we will address a topic that may be of interest to many, especially older people.
In fact, after a certain age this famous drug could protect against colon cancer. We are talking about the very common and well-known aspirin.
Research explaining how aspirin could protect against colon cancer
It is known that many people use it regularly for menstrual and muscle pain, toothache, headache or fever. Especially for older people it is also prescribed to prevent cardiovascular diseases thanks to its antiplatelet properties.
A recent research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association evaluated the anti-cancer effect of aspirin following 94,500 people over 70 years old.
The results were interesting. In fact, it seems that those who started taking aspirin after age 70 do not have a lower risk of getting colon cancer.
Instead, it appears that the benefit occurs in those people who started taking aspirin at a younger age and continued it into old age.
After a certain age this famous drug could protect against colon cancer
The research team, led by Chuan Guo Guo of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, said some very important things.
In fact, on the one hand, it is absolutely not recommended to take aspirin with the sole purpose of preventing colorectal cancers. On the other hand, however, the data seem to support the fact that it may be convenient to continue to hire it for those who were already doing it previously.
Obviously this is only possible if no other complications arise over time. In any case, it must always be remembered that whenever you have to take a medicine, it is essential to seek the advice of your doctor before taking it.
