The New Apple   

The New Apple

It used to be said that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. But aspirin looks increasingly likely to be the new stand-in. The Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) in United Kingdom says that those over 45 should take one a day. The suggestion comes in the wake of new research from Oxford University that shows taking 75 mg of aspirin daily for five years can reduce the risk of bowel cancer by a fourth. Earlier studies have already shown the efficacy of aspirin vis-à-vis heart disease. RSM experts say it may be "sensible" to start on aspirin at about 45, when chances of developing serious chronic diseases begin to rise.
