Benefits of Daily Low-Dose (Baby) Aspirin

Physicians have long recommended that adults, beginning at the age of 50, take a daily low-dose, or baby, aspirin for cardiovascular health.

Now, the Annals of Oncology has reported that for an individual aged 50 to 65 years at average risk who took aspirin daily for ten years over the fifteen year period, had a relative reduction of 7% (women) and 9% (men) in the number of cancer, myocardial infarction, or stroke events, and a 4% reduction in all-cause mortality over a twenty year period.
