Colon cancer is the second leading cause of death in North America. Early detection is key. Colonoscopies are an important tool for early detection, however many adults delay this procedure or knowingly avoid it, fearing an uncomfortable preparation period and an invasive procedure.

As the value of early detection cannot be stressed enough it is important to note that colonoscopies, and the preparation for this personal procedure need not be a scary event. Carla Greenspan Roter outlines a straight-forward, gentle and effective pre- and post-colonoscopy protocol in The Gentle Colonoscopy.
