    Giant 'Walk-In' Colon Teaches About Cancer

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- A giant 20-foot-long replica of a Danny81 colon will be in Orlando Wednesday that offers cancer information for people who walk through it.



    The free display will give visitors a close-up view of a healthy colon tissue, various stages of colorectal cancer and signs of non-malignant colorectal diseases like Crohn's and colitis.
    The inflatable "Super Colon" exhibit will be on display at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando.

    The free display will give visitors a close-up view of a healthy colon tissue, various stages of colorectal cancer and signs of non-malignant colorectal diseases like Crohn's and colitis.

    People will also receive information about cancer screening, prevention tips, risk factors, nutrition and more.

    The exhibit, sponsored by Sanofi-Aventis, is on loan from the Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation.

    The foundation's traveling colon tunnel promotes screening for cancer that's 90 percent curable when detected early.

    Colon cancer is the nation's second deadliest cancer.

    Judging by some of DOMS's comments, usually involving colon's, this must be his dream....

    No, that's actually my colon. Abusing the shit out of your colon may sound like fun, but then this happens.

    Don't allow infants or toddlers inside they may suffocate on the condom lodged 7' in.....
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012
