A new study has found that aspirin use can cut the risk of breast cancer by almost 25 percent.
The study was conducted by researchers in Toronto who found that women who regularly used the medicine had "a statistically significant drop in risk of breast cancer".
The researchers suggest that aspirin reduces cancer risk by blocking key enzymes crucial for the formation of cancerous tumours, reports the Mirror.
Dr Emma Pennery, of Breast Cancer Care, also used women not to take the drug without consulting a doctor.
"The jury is still out. These drugs can have side effects and I would not recommend healthy young women to start taking them," she said.
The study is published in the American Journal of Epidemiology
