Aspirin and Melanoma
An aspirin a day may help keep the skin cancer doctor away for women. Or so suggests a brand new study.
In this new study, researchers zeroed in on the records of nearly 60,000 women to see if and when they developed skin cancer. They found that those who took aspirin were less likely to develop melanoma skin cancer, the deadliest form of the disease.
The researchers suspect the anti-inflammatory properties in the aspirin might be behind the effect… but more research is needed to confirm their suspicions.
