A colonoscopy is a test primarily designed to diagnose bowel cancer. Americans who are 50 to 74 years old with average bowel cancer risk are often urged to take the test. To perform a colonoscopy, a small tube with a camera on the end is inserted into the anus. It is passed through the rectum and ends up in the colon.
Many sources claimed that colonoscopies can help prevent bowel cancer. In fact, more than 14 million healthy adults who are at least 50 years old submit themselves to the said procedure to detect colorectal cancer.
But what if this preventive measure is the real threat to your health?
Colonoscopies are actually more dangerous and deadly, and it’s something that experts are less likely to admit.
A Deadly and Painful Preventive Device
The colonoscopy report of the Annals of Internal Medicine revealed that 0.5% or 70,000 people have been injured or killed due to the complications brought about by this procedure. And what’s more alarming is that the annual mortality rate is 22% higher than the death rate associated with colorectal cancer – the very disease which the procedure was actually designed for.
The Telemark Polyp Study I further claimed that the mortality rate increases by a whopping 57% with this procedure. Some people diagnosed with colon cancer can live for decades but one mistake during the procedure can cause immediate death. For instance, when a doctor mistakenly punctures a hole in the patient’s intestines, it can instantaneously cause death. Furthermore, for every patient saved by colonoscopy, 56 people suffer from injuries caused by the same procedure.
But wait, there’s more! It is clinically proven that colonoscopies can cause you to contract Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Hepa B and C, HIV, E. Coli, Pseudomonas and Aeruginosa, Helicobacter pylori, Flu viruses, as well as Creutzfeldt- Jakob Disease.
Colonoscopies do not prevent cancer
Up until 2009, there was no randomized controlled trial conducted to identify the relationship between colonoscopies and reduced mortality or incidence rate of colorectal cancer.
In 2006, it was revealed that the patients in the studies who underwent a colonoscopy had at least one adenoma but were not diagnosed with cancer. A few years later, they developed cancer, but at a rate that would be expected in the general population without screening.
Colonoscopies are a scam and unnecessary
Colonoscopies are a scam designed to make doctors and the pharmaceutical industry rich. It was further claimed that colonoscopies were often made to appear as a form of preventive care when in fact, they are an unnecessary and highly invasive procedure. A single colonoscopy emits radiation levels that are similar to the bombs dropped in Hiroshima, Japan. Even the National Cancer Institute is uncertain as to whether the procedure can reduce the mortality rate associated with colorectal cancer.
A fecal immunochemical test is a non-invasive screening procedure which may be just as effective as a colonoscopy.
In a world where cancer has become a common disease affecting people of all ages, races, and demographics, lots of preventive measures have been devised to lessen the burden and increase lifespan. However, not all of these measures are as effective as they seem. You have to do your own research. Otherwise, you’ll see that the help you’ve sought to improve your well-being is the very thing that could push you to your grave.
