What are the health benefits of taking aspirin every day?

Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine
Take one 325-milligram (mg) tablet of aspirin a day if you are a man over 35 or a woman over 40. This is not just for arterial health: An aspirin decreases your risk of immune aging as well. That means you'll have more energy and less chance of having breast, rectal, colon, and other digestive tract cancers. Before you start, check with your doctor to make sure you are aspirin-tolerant.
