Gosh, that sure is weird. I know they can test that way, but I doubt the accuracy of those tests. I think they're just more or less checking for blood, but honestly, why not just give you a voucher to go to a doctor for Pete's sake.

Maybe the American Cancer Society is behind this???

Recommend I think after 50 but not mandatory. Sounds like a scam to me.

 Quoting: Keilani


I was thinking more along the lines of they want our DNA and to find out whether we got the vax yet.

I'm pretty sure the vax would leave some kind of trail in a shit sample.

And then the next letter will arrive.....

My dad did one of those. He has a lot of health issues though. They aren’t scams, not all of them anyway.

I think they just send those to older people because many/most people don’t get colonoscopies and early detection of cancer is key to defeating it.

I don't know why oatmeal works. The doctor told me to eat it. I did and the test was fine. I ate sausage on the one before and the results were not good.

I'm fairly sure they can tell dog DNA from human DNA.

And the way my nieghbor's dog acts, they'd probably want to shoot me up with doggie anti-psychotics or something.

They will get a sample of your DNA and can also probably see if you got the poison lethal injection or not.

If send something in my guess would be that it comes back positive and they start you on treatments immediately and cut out 10 feet of colon.
Even though you probably dont have anything wrong with you.
They probably have a quota to cleanse the medicare dole.

Its a farce, you did the right thing.

Their, the pharma morons, looking for a new patient to hook up. They get paid loooooooottts of money for each new patient. Trust us, they'll find some bs about the stool sample and rope you in - thats the sell.

Google how many people have died from exploratory colonoscopy's.

Just ignore them, if your eating a raw food or healthy diet, your good to go.
