TAKING three aspirin pills a week can slash the risk of dying from breast and bladder cancers, say researchers.
Tests suggest the drug combats inflammatory processes in the diseases.
But its long-term use can have harmful side- effects, experts warned.
They studied 140,000 US adults, mostly over 65, for up to 13 years.
Those with breast cancer who took aspirin at least three times a week were a quarter less likely to die.
Survival rates for bladder tumour patients were boosted by a third.
Any aspirin use cut the risk of death by 21 and 25 per cent compared to those who never had it.
