March is National Nutrition Month
March is the Colon Rectal Awareness Month
Colo-rectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States and the second leading cause of death from cancer. Colo-rectal cancer affects people in all racial and ethnic groups and is most often found in people age 50 and older. The good news? If everyone age 50 and older were screened regularly, 6 out of 10 deaths from colo-rectal cancer could be prevented.
