Say this to your Doctor if you are Asked to Have a Colonoscopy
In modern society, doctors frequently recommend to their patients that they have a procedure called colonoscopy. This is a test that can allow the doctors to take a look at the colon and inner lining of the rectum.
This test has the ability not only to spot precancerous growths in the large intestine, but also to spot areas of inflammation and find ulcers. According to the latest statistics, about 14 million people a year undergo this simple procedure.
The question we really want answered here is, does this really work?
First of all, it is a very painful procedure. Not many people are aware that this procedure can even be fatal.
It has been reported that about 70.000 people each year have either been injured or killed during this procedure because of its complexity. The colonoscopy increases the mortality rate by 57%, and according to science, this is a procedure that can lead to a lot of diseases, such as HIV, HPV, E.Coli, Salmonella, Hepatitis B and C, as well as flu viruses.
Second, the colonoscopy cannot prevent cancer. Some researches, dating several years back, showed that with some of the patients adenoma was detected, but never cancer.
These people have developed cancer in the following years, but it has not been shown on the colonoscopy. Another study even showed that even though the polyps have been removed, the patients would show signs of cancer at the same age without even screening.
Finally, the colonoscopy is considered to be a scam. The doctors and pharmaceutical companies benefit from it, and this is why they always urge you to have one.
It is a scam just for money, and this is why people should definitely avoid it. It is an invasive and possibly a deadly procedure, with a radiation on a high level as the bombs in Hiroshima (yes, this is true).
So, in order to keep yourself healthy and prevent any further damage done to your body, you should definitely talk to your doctor and consult about whether or not you should be having a screening test, stool test, computed tomographic colonography, or any other safer form of testing.
