Re: New treatment for bowel cancer?

I agree..I have "played" poo-sticks since the very beginning of the tests coming into use, and it used to be a very messy business with rubber gloves etc etc but the one I did in April was SO neat. The kit is well thought out and clean to use and easy...so different to the old system. Some...
