Aspirin -- Saves Us From Cancer -- Study

It is proved scientifically that a low dose of aspirin daily reduces the risk of cancer remarkably.

The risk of increased bleeding is still a side effect of aspirin use that limits its intake. This risk of a bleed is so small compared to the benefits , Yes, okay, it's a tragedy if a person is rushed into hospital and given a transfusion (because of a stomach bleed) but in relation to the things we are preventing, that is trivial In a study of eight trials involving 25,570 patients, researchers found that cancer deaths among those who took aspirin in doses as low as 75 milligrams a day were 21 %  lower during the studies and 34 %  lower after five years.

What ? ? ? Fruits Unable to Protect against Cancer ! ! !

Eating fresh fruit and vegetables will not protect you against cancer as it has little effect, a study finds. Official guidelines recommend at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day in order to be healthy but new research has found that this may not have a substantial effect on cancer. The science suggests that people should be told that cancer risk is much more related to how much you eat and drink rather than what you eat. The review, published in the British Journal of Cancer, looks at a decade of evidence on the links between fruit and vegetables and the development of cancer, but it concludes that the evidence is still not convincing. But fruits and vegetables have other beneficial effects. They contain essential minerals and vitamins and are a great source of them. Fruit and vegetables have a special place in the healthy diet chart.

Mediterranean diet have health benefits over other diets.

Researches revealed that following a Mediterranean diet can have health benefits. The ingredients in Mediterranean recipes are full of heart-healthy nutrients . But new research now also links Mediterranean food with the prevention of malignant melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer. Because the fresh produce eaten by southern Europeans includes carrots, tomatoes, watermelon, olive oil and fish, it has been found to protect our skin from damaging UV rays. Despite seeing plenty of sunshine, only three in every 100,000 people in Mediterranean countries develop skin cancer. (The frequency of skin cancer is 50 in every 100,000 in Australia) It is thought that consuming foods rich in antioxidants allows the body to build up a resistance to the sun's damaging rays. One reason the skin was able to defend itself was because of carotenoids, the colour pigment in fruit and vegetables such as tomatoes, watermelons, carrots and pumpkins. The best way to prevent sunburn
