“It is well known that a person’s lifestyle affects the risk of cancer. Swiss scientists have now shown that this is at least partially the result of effects of lifestyle factors on the genome. While aging is slowed down with regular aspirin use, smoking increases it. The study was published in the “Journal of the National Cancer Institute”. ”
The Journal further reported “that regular aspirin use and smoking led to changes of gene markers – however, with opposite effects: while smoking accelerated the effects, aspirin slowed them down. Genes that are associated with the development of cancer are particularly affected by this, said lead author Faiza Noreen. “
If there is a wonder drug, it seems to be aspirin. I have taken it for years. There seems to be beneficial effects on aging (see above), heart and vascular disease and cancer prevention. What else could you ask for?
