[Meryl Streep] Colorectal cancer - it's the second leading cancer killer in the U.S., but, it is almost entirely preventable. Most colon cancers start as polyps and screening helps finds polyps so they can be removed before they even turn into cancer. Screening also finds this cancer early, when treatment works best.
So if you're over 50, take control. Get screened for colorectal cancer. Screening saves lives. It could really save your life.
