A camera to detect bowel cancer, save lives
London: A study showed that checking for bowel cancer using a camera rather than looking for blood could cut the death rate by 43 percent and reduce the number of people developing the disease by a third.
Cancer Research chief executive Harpal Kumar described the finding as a "breakthrough", reports dailystar.co.uk.
"It is extremely rare to see the results of a clinical trial which are as compelling as this," Kumar said.
Kumar wants the next government to introduce the test quickly.
