March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. About 140,000 people are diagnosed with the disease each year with over 50,000 dying. But – colorectal cancer is highly preventable through early screening and detection.

In this national month designated to bring awareness to this disease, I would like to provide you a few tips from the CDC.

To help ward off this deadly disease, the CDC recommends:

  • Those between 50 and 75 should be screened regularly for colorectal cancer
  • Stay physically active
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Limit alcohol intake
  • Don’t smoke

For more information and additional resources on preventing this cancer, take a look at the CDC’s Screen for Life: National Colorectal Cancer Action Campaign.
