WZTV FOX 17/Nashville recently aired a five part series on simple ways to prolong your life. It was based on a study from the National Commission on Prevention Priorities.

Act Now, Live Longer, Part 5 covers colonoscopies. “14-thousand lives would be saved each year … if 90 percent of adults age 50 and up … had a regular colonoscopy. Today … fewer than 50 percent do.”
