It's about time I think it should be at 40 for anybody that has a grandparent or relative that's closer that has suffer cancer.

I dunno. That's gonna put further strain on care providers in the time of COVID?

Is it really worth spreading COVID to maybe determine if someone has colon cancer?

"Do you do anything besides troll?"

I'm just saying...for a doctor to conduct a colorectal screening would require one human coming into contact with another. And even if both were young and healhty, there is still the possibility that one of the parties could contract the virus and be subject to long COVID?

So isn't it worth it if someone dies of colorectal cancer...so long as you prevent a greater number of being subject to COVID?

My understanding is that this is pretty much the foundation for the global response to the pandemic.
