Aspirin link to lower cancer death rates

A small dose of aspirin every day could significantly reduce the risk of dying from a range of common cancers, a study suggests.
Research at Oxford University and other centres found that it cut overall cancer deaths by at least a fifth.
Experts say the study, published in the Lancet, shows aspirin's benefits outweigh its associated risk of stomach and gut bleeding.
