Early detection of colorectal cancer may be hindered by coloured toilet disinfectants

A new study published in the British Medical Journal has argued that the cause of failure in detecting colorectal cancers at an early stage could be attributed to coloured toilet disinfectants. Researchers claimed that nine out of ten bowel and colon cancers detected early can be successfully treated and that once the cancer has spread cure rates drop dramatically. The National programme// for detection of colorectal cancer suggested checking toilets before flushing for any signs of blood, which may indicate that all is not well.

Dr Mourad Habib, a clinical research fellow at St James's University Hospital, Leeds,said that toilet disinfectants now available in the market are usually blue in colour and this makes looking for blood difficult. He therefore suggested that manufacturers of toilet disinfectants switch to colourless products, or use agents that turn a specific colour in the presence of minor amounts of blood. His argument was hailed as "interesting and valid", by Jola Gore-Booth, Chief Executive of Colon Cancer Concern. She also added that the more aware people become of the symptoms of colorectal cancer and act on their concerns, the more easier it would be to reduce instances and deaths from this terrible disease.
