Colon Cancer Awareness
Preventative Care Saves Lives
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. You should begin screening for colon cancer at age fourty-five and screen again every 10 years after. Scheduling a simple screening today can lead to early detection and may even save your life!
How can you take preventative measures in addition to a screening?
• 30 minutes of physical activity a day
• Limit your consumption of red meat and alcohol
• Make fruits and vegetables a bigger part of your diet
• Don’t smoke
• Drink unsweetened drinks wherever possible
