The blood cells that create clots to stop wound from continuous bleeding, could prevent tumors from growing.

In a research published February, found that the aspirin distorts the normal clotting process of shutting down a key enzyme called COX-1. This results to preventing an interaction between platelets and cancer cells and suppressing the development of tumors.

This is a type of lipid or fat molecule found in soy lecithin. It is also developed to prevent gastrointestinal risk linked with regular aspirins. The study has provided the effectiveness and much efficiency of the enhanced aspirin complex, called Aspirin-PC/PL2200. It is composed of the same or higher, chances of effectiveness than regular aspirins. The study suggests that the Aspirin-PC/PL2200 as an effective and safer complete agent for colorectal cancer.
