Dr Oz: Colon Cancer Awareness
According to Dr Oz, Katie Couric changed the way we screen for colon cancer after undergoing a live colonoscopy on The Today Show. Katie explained that she wanted to bring things out in the open because people were too timid to even talk about colon cancer or colonoscopies. She didn’t want people to be left saying “if only” like she was when her husband died of colon cancer at age 42. She wanted to show that it wasn’t that bad so everyone should do it.
