Health Alert: Aspirin could cut risk of pancreatic cancer

(CBS)- A new study says that taking a low dose of aspirin every day may cut the risk of pancreatic cancer nearly in half. Researchers at Yale tracked hundreds of patients at Connecticut hospitals. Those taking a low dose of aspirin over a continued period of time cut their risk of pancreatic cancer by as much as 48 percent.


(CBS)- Military veterans who have suffered a traumatic brain injury may be at higher risk for developing dementia later in life. A study in the Journal Neurology followed nearly 200 thousand veterans. Those who had suffered a traumatic brain injury were 60 percent more likely to develop dementia and to develop it about two years earlier than other veterans. 


(CBS)- New research shows the dangers of being a couch potato. A study in the Journal of the American Heart Association says adults who watch TV for three hours or more each day may double their risk of premature death.
