SLASH Your Risk of Dying From Colon Cancer (Here’s How)
If there’s one form of cancer you don’t want to get, it’s colon cancer.
It’s the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., killing more than 100,000 people every year.
Even if you’re lucky enough to survive colon cancer, you could end up with something serious like a colostomy bag that could impact your quality of life.
But you don’t have to become a statistic…or have your life dramatically altered… because there’s something you can do to make sure you NEVER get colon cancer.
Even better, a recent study showed that this one simple step can significantly reduce your risk of dying from this disease.
I’m not a fan of all cancer screenings.
Mammograms, for example, should be outlawed for the pain-inflicting, cancer-CAUSING things that they are (ladies, get a digital thermography instead).
But there’s one cancer screening that I firmly stand behind.
A recent study has confirmed that getting a routing colonoscopy can reduce the risk of dying from one of the deadliest cancers out there.
Researchers studied about 25,000 people, comparing those who had died of colon cancer to those who did not have a cancer diagnosis.
Their goal was to see if getting a colonoscopy reduced the risk of dying from colon cancer.
Turns out that the people who got a routine colonoscopy had a 61% reduced risk of dying from the disease.
This screening test looks for growths on the colon called polyps. These growths start off harmless enough, but given enough time, some can develop into cancer.
Polyps generally don’t cause any symptoms, making routing screening the BEST way to get—and stay—ahead of colon cancer.
Most doctors recommend getting screened starting at age 50. But if you’re a smoker or have a family history of colon cancer, start even sooner.
To a brighter day,
