Study Finds Unexpected Vaginal Bleeding After COVID Jab


New research led by Dr. Islam Mohamed from the University of Missouri-Kansas City reveals a startling escalation in colon cancer rates among individuals under 45, especially teenagers and those in their early twenties.

The study found that colon cancer cases have more than tripled among teenagers and more than doubled in early twenties individuals. This significant data is set to be a focal point at the upcoming Digestive Disease Week in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Mohamed emphasizes the urgent need for increased awareness and preventive measures among young adults. In a recent press release, he noted “Colorectal cancer is no longer considered just a disease of the elderly population. It’s important that the public is aware of signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer.”
