Multitasking NSAIDS

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like aspirin, may also have a role to play in reducing breast cancer, according to researchers at Guy's Hospital in London published in the International Journal of Clinical Practice. Ian Fentiman and colleagues reviewed the literature of the last 27 years and found a correlation with reduced breast cancer risk in NSAID users as well as benefits for women with established breast cancer. The researchers stress, however, that further research is needed to determine the best type, dose and duration and whether the benefits of regular NSAID use outweigh the side effects.
