If you are under the age of 50, skip this post. In Living Healthy Podcast #33, Dr. Domke talks about colon cancer. Very bad juju. Second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. But easily treated if detected early and much of the half-hour podcast deals with colonoscopy screening. Long-time readers will recall that smays had his first screening a couple of years ago and it was a walk in the park. Seriously.
I hate being nagged and would never recommend it but if you have a loved one that is over fifty and has not had a colonoscopy, ask them to. Then insist that they do. Then make their life a living hell until they do. Like Henry says, how many chances do you get to save someone’s life?
