Excerpts from a chat on colon cancer

Patrick (Chicago, Illinois) – 12:11 PM:
All the recent rave is colon cleansing. How effective is it, if at all, and what is the best way of performing it?

Dr. Manoj Mehta
Rave is a good word. It does seem to be a fad, but there is little science behind it. One of the things we contend with is a giant medical system which is inherently difficult for most people to comprehend. We realize the system is foreboding and unapproachable. In that, there is potential for distrust and doubt. There are many who would take advantage of these vulnerabilities, and by touting something as “off the radar” of conventional medicine, there is almost an audience-in-waiting. Ultimately, these choices are your own. But be careful with that.
