Regular aspirin use may help decrease the risk of serious liver problems.
A new large study found aspirin users were 41% less likely to be diagnosed with liver cancer and 45% less likely to die from chronic liver disease than non-aspirin users.
People who took other over-the-counter pain relievers were 26% less likely to die from liver disease, but their liver cancer risk was not decreased.
Researchers hope these findings could to lead to new ways to help prevent liver disease.
