Colorectal cancer is a leading cause of mortality from cancer in the United States.
Unfortunately, many patients already have advanced disease by the time symptoms occur.
Screening of asymptomatic persons offers the potential of detecting the disease at its early and curable stages.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) screening recommendations are the most widely employed in this country.
We sought to determine whether gastroenterologists themselves follow the ACS recommendations, and if not, to determine their reasons for not doing so.
We also looked at gastroenterologists'use of diets and supplements that might reduce the likelihood of colorectal cancer.
