Re: Aspirin could Cut Lung Cancer (DA Morgan)

"There are so many good reasons to take a baby aspirin every day. And I can't think of a single negative other than the cost."

And in the past few years the US has spent $65 for every man woman and child in the country to study global warming with the result that we now know ??? I wonder how many lives would have been saved if that $65 had been spent buying aspirin, distributing them, and educating people to take them rather than producing contradictory reports? I guess the consequences of global warming are so important that these people just have to die while we do something ANYTHING to show we care.

P.S. And just to show how disagreeable I am this morning, another negative of aspirin besides cost is erosion of the gastric tract. The benefits clearly outweigh the negative aspects but there are more negative aspects than just cost.

P.P.S. To end on a positive note, take the aspirin with food and the side effects are minimized.
