We have all heard about how taking aspirin a day can help with a multitude of things. However, it might very well help keep colon cancer and cardiovascular disease at bay. If you are not on blood thinners, and are considered moderate to high risk, you might consider taking a low-dose aspirin daily. Aspirin has anti-inflammatory properties, and also decreases chances of tumor development or blood clots.
As with anything, make sure you speak to your doctor before starting any medication.
