    Low-dose aspirin may help women reduce their risk of developing breast cancer, a new study published in Breast Cancer Research has suggested.1 Overall, regular low-dose aspirin use (81 mg) was tied to a 16% lower risk of breast cancer in women when taken at least 3 times per week.
     
    The study, led by Leslie Bernstein PhD, included women who worked in California public schools. Participants completed a baseline questionnaire from 1995-1996 based on family history of cancer and other conditions, use of NSAIDs, menstrual and reproductive history, self-reported weight and height, living environment, diet, alcohol use, and physical activity. From 2005-2006, 57,164 participants provided updated information, and 1457 of these participants developed invasive breast cancer before January 2013.
