Headache AND Breast Cancer Relief

Is there anything that aspirin can't do?

"Breast cancer survivors who take aspirin regularly may be less likely to die or have their cancer return, U.S. researchers reported Tuesday."

I think the first part of that sentence is incorrect: after all, isn't everyone's chance of dying 100%? Still, it's good to know that, in addition to staving off strokes and heart attacks, the lowly and inexpensive acetylsalicylic acid can help extend the lives of breast cancer patients and survivors.
