18 May 11 Biotechnology and colonoscopy research

Based on a recent news on the “The New Economy”, a Belgian Biotechnology firm and a Danish Biotechnology company called Exiqon  are developing a new type of blood tests to detect colon cancer. A colon cleanse is a relative cheap process of cleaning the colon of its built-up fecal matter. According to many sources, most people may have from 5 to as much as 40 lbs of fecal matter residue in their colon. Much of this is probably compacted matter, putrefied proteins, rancid fats, and fermented carbohydrates. According to some recent studies, if this accumulation is not eliminated, it can lead to such chronic problems as constipation, bloating, body odor, bad breath, back ache, weight problems, a weak immune system and even, in the ultimate stage, bowel cancer.

There are ways to cleanse the colon in a natural way. One of the natural colon cleansing methods is to change ones diet. Adding larger portions of fresh fruit and steamed vegetables, fiber-rich cereals and bran, can help to eliminate the compacted fecal matter. There are also herbal remedies that claim to achieve natural colon cleansing and reduce the high costs of a colonoscopy. Most of these herbs contain psyllium husk. The husk swells in its passage through the colono when it comes into contact with water, and hence pushes the compacted matter out and emptying the bowel. Will be the Biotechnology the new science that can help to reduce colon cancer problem and colon test costs? Let’s see what will happen !
