iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A new study found that aspirin use may help to reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer.
According to a study published Thursday in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, researchers found that for each year of continued low-dose or regular-dose aspirin use, study participants were less likely to develop pancreatic cancer.
Perhaps more notable, in those individuals who stopped aspirin use one to two years prior to the start of the study, the rate of pancreatic cancer was about three times higher.
Previous studies have indicated that aspirin use may help to lower the odds of developing other forms of cancer. This particular study, however, required participants to determine frequency of aspirin use.
