New Year's are often the times when we self-reflect what can we do to improve our health. Is it go to the gymn more to get in better shape? Is it a new to diet to lose weight? Or is it go to the doctor for my annual check-up to make sure that everything checks out?
I am sad to read Kirstie Alley's obituary that she passed from colon cancer. If only, she had had a colonoscopy this could have been prevented. If you are 45 or over or have a family history of colon cancer and never had a colonoscopy, the new year may be the time to finally get yourself checked. A colonoscopy is a thirty minute exam that could save your life.
