Colon Cancer Prevention Screening

According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is the second-deadliest cancer in the United States among men and women combined. But it doesn’t have to be – if everyone 45 years or older got regular screenings, at least 60% of deaths from colorectal cancer could be prevented.
