A fantastic colon cancer prevention day

19 marzo 2014

One of the aspects to which the Mount Sinai Hospital holds the most is prevention. The calendar is full of events that have to do with this topic.

During the school of medicine and

even after that, there is a high risk to forgot that the first and perhaps most important aspect of medicine is PREVENTION.

Modern medicine always risks to be too focused on technology and treatments, rather than other aspects. This is one of the reasons behind my appreciation toward my current working institution. Someday you find out healthy food and diabetes prevention, sometimes cardiovascular prevention, and so on. It doesn’t matter if only a limited percentage of people is coherent with this kind of prevention for the rest of their week: it’s always important to promote such initiatives.

Sometimes they also make me laugh: it is the case of colon cancer prevention, a few days ago. I’m sorry I had no time to post it up to now. Take a look: have you ever tried to take a walk-through in a mega-inflatable colon? You should have been here in NY!

Do you know what made me laugh so much?

The answer is kinda simple: I instantly thought about what might come up for the day of the prevention of cervical cancer! ah ah
Maybe something as epic as this!!
