Low Dose Aspirin – Finally Yes

Print This Post Print This Post

In 1976 the Nurses Health Study started and included 121,701 nurses. Evaluation of the people in the study after six years showed no improvement in the mortality rates, however in this study they looked almost 80,000 nurses at 24 years of taking low dose aspirin. What they found is that the incidence of deaths from heart disease was substantially reduced and those from cancer were also less but not as dramatic as those for heart disease. Further evaluation of the data allowed the researchers to say that at 24 years of taking low dose aspirin the risk of mortality from all causes was reduced (and this includes colorectal cancer the third leading cause of death). 80,000 people over 24 years that’s good enough for me, I think I’ll start taking low dose aspirin.
