A lot of people take aspirin to help prevent heart attacks and strokes. The dose for this protection is usually very small - such as that provided by one baby aspirin (81 mg). But the next time you go to your doctor, he will probably tell you to nearly quadruple your dose. Let me tell you why - and why you should tell him "no thanks."

You can expect more pressure to take large doses of aspirin thanks to a new study. Researchers recently found that 300 mg of the common drug can reduce your risk of colon cancer quite significantly. In fact, if you take it for five years, you will reduce your risk by 37%. After 10-15 years, the risk reduction jumps to 74%. Those are impressive figures.

Unfortunately, lower doses didn't have the protective effect. You'll need 300 mg per day, or more. That's not a small dose. As you may know, aspirin is not without side effects. It regularly induces bleeding in your gut. Sometimes it's severe enough to cause death.

So if your doctor tells you to take more aspirin, here's how you should respond. Tell him you know that aspirin works by inhibiting the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase. This is the family of enzymes we commonly call cox-1 and cox-2. Cox-2 inhibitors include the now infamous Vioxx. Cox-1 inhibitors include common pain relievers, such as Nuprin, Motrin, naproxen, and others.

Then tell him that omega-3 oils also inhibit cyclo-oxygenase enzymes. But they do it with no known risk. Also tell him that vitamin D in ample amounts prevents colon cancer (I recommend 5,000 IU daily). Tell him that you have reduced or eliminated red meat, known to be associated with a higher risk.

And, finally, refer to the information I brought you months ago on the incredible nutrients
quercetin and curcumin. They dramatically reverse precancerous polyps - even those from genetic causes. You can beat the alleged aspirin benefits without the serious risks to your stomach.
