This tidy, little colon is standing in for a really disgusting piece of anatomy that goes by the same name.
We present this image today to draw your attention to a topic for which we have recently become the unofficial poster child.
That topic is colorectal cancer screening.
If you are over 50 years old it is time to have a colonoscopy.
If you have a family history of colon cancer it is time to ask your doctor when you should have a colonoscopy.
If you have a personal history of polyps and were told to have a recheck it is time to have a colonoscopy.
Colon cancer is very preventable.
As is ending up with a semi-colon.
Colons are gross.
We have spared you the graphic images, but if we hear that you haven't taken this message as seriously as we should have, look out!
We will spill some guts across this space to illustrate our point.
