I drink daily green smoothies (that is recent), eat plenty of seafood, legumes, fruits and vegetables, and have done so for years. Last month, during a routine colonoscopy, doctor removed a cancerous polyp. They weren’t sure if they got it all and MRI revealed at least stage 1. So I recently had 12 inches of my rectum/colon removed. It all turned out well thankfully but colon cancer is the last diagnosis I ever expected to hear.
Did they show it to you? Did you demand to see the laboratory slide that demonstrated, without a shadow of a doubt that this polyp was cancerous?

In Missouri, you don't need a license to work in a medical laboratory. You don't even need any medical/scientific/biological experience. All you need is a pulse. I cannot even begin to imagine how many UNNECESSARY medical procedures are conducted on patients due to a misdiagnosis resulting from a laboratory employee who didn't have a single clue what they were doing.

I shudder to think how many die because of it.

Not to change the subject *ahem*, I eat a horrific diet and am as healthy as a horse. I drink plenty too. People are just different and react differently to things. Nobody knows, nobody really knows.

I didn’t see the slide....only pathology report which was signed off by two different pathologists who both concurred that there was cancer in the polyp.

I wonder if they even looked at them.

Just 1 drink reduces lifespan.

My lifespan is supposed to be 77. I'm way past that age. By what that story was talking about then I should have been dead many many years ago. For the past 50+years I've always had 1-2 beers before nearly every dinner. I've had several doctors tell me that a beer or 2 has most of the vitamins you'll ever need and that that much beer is not harmful. I agree, it hasn't hurt me.

So the previous advice was that a drink or two a day actually increased lifespan and prevented artherosclerosis and heart attacks. Now this new report contradicts that. No wonder people are confused.. we are constantly subject to confusing and contradictory information from the medical community.
The difference is, that advice to take a couple of drinks a day, comes from a source that is sponsored by those who produce alcoholic drinks. There was a time, when tobacco companies claimed that their product soothed people's nerves and improved their mental health.

If people spend money on alcohol, they won't have as much money for pills that kill nearly 3 times as many as alcohol, when used as prescribed.

I've probably had 50,000-60,000+ drinks containing alcohol over the last 35 years. I did some online test where they tell a person at what age they will die, based on the healthy and unhealthy things they do or don't do, and to what extent. It said they'd expect me to die at 45!

So I looked for liver detoxifier online. Found the Himalaya Liver Care formula highest rated, on market since 1955. One convincing review was from someone who was drinking 10+ glasses of wine daily. Doc said choices are quit or die. After they used it for a couple weeks, they went to Dr. for recheck. Dr. said congrats on quitting, biggest 2 week improvement of all current patients. Patient didn't quit, just cut back to about 6 glasses of wine daily. Yes, it prevents damage, promotes regeneration of healthy new liver cells in clinical trials.

My Uncle, who was an alcoholic (and chain smoker), had 20 drinks a day for 60 years....just imagine how much longer he would have lived if he hadn't taken those 450,000 drinks....we always figured he was too pickled for diseases like lung cancer to take hold.

You suggested that I demand to “see the slide”. How in the world would I know if cancer is present in the polyp?
