Here are some MYTHS:
1) Colon Cancer kills people with Family history: True
2) It does not kill people who are healthy–FALSE
Dr.OZ found a cancerous polyp at age 50–he has a TV Show–and he is in great shape,eats well,exercises daily. HE STRONGLY RECOMMENDS; CANCER SCREENING ASAP.
3) Colon Cancer kills people over 50–False- People under 54 also are suffering from Colon Cancer– 1 in 5 incidences are in this age group of 30-54.
Many under 50 die— Ryan Goddard died at 30 (Story in www.getyourrearingear.com ) where Dr.Mullick is a volunteer doctor for Colon Cancer Cause.
4) Then why the insurance pays for over 50– It is based on Cost/benefit.
More people over 50 die,Less under 50.
