I must respond to Ms Daniels: Why smear a physician you know nothing about, in your anger over your brother's death? In his position with the ACS, I doubt seriously that Dr Brooks sees patients at all. Oncologists know that colon cancers can occur before age 50; the current guidelines are based on a lot of data and consideration of the risk/benefit factors. If you had told your brother at age 40 to get a colonoscopy, would he have done it?
