Colon Cancer? Take An Asprin:FDA
By CARLA K. JOHNSON, AP Medical Writer
2 mins ago CHICAGO

Score another win for the humble aspirin. A study suggests colon cancer patients who took the dirt-cheap wonder drug reduced their risk of death from the disease by nearly 30 percent.

Aspirin already is recommended for preventing heart attacks and strokes, along with its traditional use for relief of minor aches and pains. Its merit in colon cancer prevention has been tempered by its side effects, bleeding from irritation of the stomach or intestines.

The new study suggests patients who already have colon cancer may benefit from taking aspirin along with surgery and chemotherapy. In a separate analysis of a subgroup of patients, only those with the most common type of tumor, those that overproduce the Cox-2 enzyme, saw a benefit.

It's too early for an across-the-board recommendation however, both Chan and Neugut said. The results should be confirmed in an experiment where patients would be randomly assigned to take aspirin or a dummy pill. A study based in Singapore that's now recruiting patients may verify aspirin's benefit.

Chan's study was observational, meaning researchers merely observed what patients were already doing, such as taking aspirin regularly for headaches. It's possible that factors other than aspirin accounted for the difference in cancer deaths.

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States after lung cancer. The National Cancer Institute estimates that nearly 50,000 Americans will die from it this year.

This finding is almost too stupid for words.

Here's what the deal is. When a person has any type of surgery it induces a strong anabolic reaction throughout the body, thereby promoting lots of tumor metasteses to pop up.

Aspirin is catabolic which is antagonistic to the anabolic reaction. So yes, aspirin would reduce cancer mortality after surgery.

But it's a g.d. stupid way to induce a catabolic reaction because that stuff causes internal bleeding, which isn't wise when a person has just had surgery!!!!!!

Far better would be to take emulsified cod liver oil. It has the dual effect of being anti-inflammatory (picture the surgical would and its inflammatory state) AND it is catabolic.

Every effing doctor in the country needs to read my book to prevent them from killing half their patients. Since they might not see this message, you better get it yourself to protect yourself from your doctor!

BTW, one man with a 10-inch colon tumor used my free recipe. He'd been bleeding for several months. On the first day of using my free recipe, his bleeding and pain stopped.

His tumor shrank down in less than a month, and his lab work improved dramatically before he stopped using my recipe.

Then the tumor came back. If he'd stayed with it, he'd be cured.

if you mix a good probiotic with a good fiber source, you will NEVER get colon cancer in the first place
