Thanks for posting Wally. I don't take aspirin every day but it's always been my drug of choice when needed.

Wallycat, My medical oncologist recommended taking 81 mg of aspirin to help mitigate a recurrence and indicated that it was useful in preventing other cancers. Not sure about that, I figure it can't hurt

I've read so many articles about aspirin; this study shows why sometimes it isn't as black and white as we are led to believe. I have no idea if my body is doing any of the methylation in my DNA. I took it for 10 years, mainly when I started tamoxifen to prevent clots, but then I read about gut bleeds....wish there were a definitive answer and a way to do labs on ourselves
