Researchers have discovered another potential benefit of aspirin, this time to help fight colon cancer.According to a new study, men who take aspirin regularly appear to be less likely to develop colon cancer.

Researchers in Boston say patients who took at least two doses of aspirin a week for at least six years showed a significant decrease in risk.

Test patients routinely took more aspirin than recommended for heart health.

Researchers say they must now figure out what dosage is best to reduce the risk.
