Marsha Blackburn says Anthony Fauci’s Revisionist History Will Not Change the Facts

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after Dr. Anthony Fauci once again wrongfully smeared Senator Blackburn and others for “attacking science.” This deflection is part of an ongoing attempt to distract from Fauci’s refusal to investigate the Wuhan Lab of Virology.

“Whether intentional or not, Dr. Fauci’s statements shielded the Chinese Communist Party in covering up its role in creating this deadly pandemic by downplaying the possibility that the virus leaked from a lab,” said Senator Blackburn.

BACH: Mail-In Colon Cancer Screening eliminates Colonoscopy for most

 

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report colon cancer is now the third leading cause of cancer death in the United States and medical officials said early detection greatly increases survivability. For most beneficiaries, a convenient, mail-in test performed at home is all that is needed to check for the disease.

“Colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is cancer of the gastrointestinal track, which includes the stomach, small intestine, large intestine and rectum. It’s most common in people age 50 and older so that’s when we typically recommend screening, earlier if there is a family history of colon cancer. If you discover it early there is a great survival rate,” said Capt. Douglas Engle, a physician assigned to Blanchfield Army Community Hospital’s internal medicine clinic.

An easy and convenient test performed at home, then mailed to a laboratory in a pre-addressed postage-paid package is all that most beneficiaries need to complete a colorectal cancer screening. Regular screening for adults over age 50 is the key to preventing colorectal cancer and finding it early. These screening tests can find precancerous polyps, so they may be removed before they turn into cancer. (U.S. Army photo by Maria Yager)
