Colonoscopy: A "Gold Standard to Refuse," according to Dr. McDougall

He's pretty persuasive. After my last one, I said "That is it - no more for me." Unlike the colonoscopy, the sigmoidoscopy can be administered without anesthesia by a competent GP. I had the sygmoid once before the colonoscopy became the rage. While unpleasant, it certainly beat the risk/no apparent reward situation with the colonoscopy and the fact that the anesthesia wipes you out for a day. (Not to mention the cost!)
