Hope in face of colorectal cancer?

My boyfriend has just been diagnosed with cancer of the colon. I don’t really know what I want to ask here, except to ask for some reason to hope that he’ll be okay, and to ask for advice if he’s not. [more inside]

Please check my colon

Please help settle a debate. Is the colon in the following sentence used properly? "Disagreement about climate change is rarely a simple dispute about facts: people’s interpretation of climate change information is influenced by cognitive factors and motivated reasoning." Thank you.

145:110... 132:114... 114:101... what does this page of numbers mean?

At the local dog park, someone apparently found two Post-it notes, covered in strange number pairs, and pinned them to the lost&found board because, well, they look like they might be important! Since then, there's been much speculation about what these numbers might be for, what they might mean. Rather then type it all out, I have an image of the notes themselves, here. [more inside]

full body cleanse detox

I have two weeks off for christmas and I would like to use that time to do a very effective liver, colon, kidney cleanse. Can someone please give me a detailed plan including which order to do the cleanses; I've heard to do kidneys before liver so you can properly flush. I'm interested in what my meals should look like (juice fast, master cleanse, raw foods) as well as what supplements are helpful to expel crap from my guts. My goal is not weightloss. I tend to breakout in rashes after meals and I plan to slowly reintroduce foods after the cleanse to gauge what foods I have negative reactions to. It might be relevant to mention that I eat fish and eggs and cheese but no other animal products. Thanks for all your help.

Colon Cleansing - Are the solutions advertised on TV and on the web a good idea? Are they harmful? Do doctors approve this kind of thing?

My body stores feces in the rectum -- weird, but is it bad?

Every anal-sex manual says not to worry, feces isn't stored in the rectum. Well, my body doesn't know that. Could this cause, or be the effect of, any health problems I should know about? Text gets explicit. [more inside]
