8:15 am
shows there might be an increase in cancer? >> it doesn't mean it's causing cancer. remember, there's more than a dozen studies showing aspirin taken correctly prevents cancers. what we may bes seeing here if you already have a cancer, does it worsen that process? does it makehe cancer go more quickly? there's a whole separate centers in america todayd saying, should people who are already diagnosed with cancer get off pirin? this study would make folks worried. i talked to the doctor who wrote the study, the primary doctor from melboue, australia, that was the biggest finding and that's why these studies are ad? >> this i definitely worth a discussion with your doc. go in armed with information. doctor means teacher. be a student go in recognizing what the d means. specifically, think twices if you're put on aspirin to prevent a problem.
