Live In Canada? No Colonoscopy For Your Cancer Screening Is Required

According to a recent publication by The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care, a colonoscopy does not need to be used to screen adults for colon cancer. They instead have a simpler and far less invasive suggestion: search for blood in the stool that may be indicative of colon cancer.

The goal of screening for colon cancer is to find any polyps. If and when they are found, they can be removed before they become cancerous. In Canada, they use a health screening method to detect signs of colon cancer polyps in stool called guaiac fecal occult blood testing (gFOBT) or fecal immunochemical testing (FIT).

This week, the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care, which consists of leading doctors and methodologists, updated their suggestions for the screening process in older adults 50 and up who are not showing any signs or symptoms of cancer and who have been deemed as low risk candidates.

In recent years, opponents of colonoscopies have presented evidence that shows that they are not superior to any other current screening method with equally as effective alternative methods available, according to Healthline. This new information is indicative that leading medical experts in Canada also agree.

The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care does recommend that adults between the ages of 60 and 75 be screened using the FIT or FOBT method at least one time every 24 months. They do not advise screening adults over the age of 75 due to the fact that mortality rates are relatively unaffected with treatment.

But, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force says these screenings should take place between the ages of 50 and 75, a 10-year difference from the Canadian recommendation. They also recommend that either a FOBT, colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy method be used.

“Regardless of age, primary care providers should discuss the most appropriate choice of test with patients who are interested in screening, considering patient values and preferences as well as local test availability,” the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force suggests.

According to the American Cancer Society, each year in the U.S. there are “95,270 new cases of colon cancer” and “39,220 new cases of rectal cancer.” The “lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer is: about 1 in 21 (4.7%) for men and 1 in 23 (4.4%) for women.”

Annually, nearly 50,000 Americans die as a result of this disease, which is highly treatable when caught in the early stages. According to Cancer.org, the five-year survival rate for those who are diagnose with stage I colon cancer is 92%.

  16. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!
