No, butt I am not normal. All my tests came back negative or normal for colon caner. I did not fit the normal colon cancer profile. I was not overweight, loved my veggies and chicken than and still to this day, BUTT also loved my burnt on my outdoor grill cheeseburger, Guess I got cancer from those charred meat pieces (just like my grandmother) on the grill. My exercise maybe was not the best, butt did not oppose it either. today I've been a power walker for 14+ yrs.
