Blue for colon?
Thursday, March 04, 2010
Saw this just now in my Twitter stream:
Remember, tomorrow is national wear blue day for colon cancer awareness. http://bit.ly/aVVzA2 /via @Swedish
And I thought, blue. For colon cancer, really, BLUE?
At least with breast cancer, there’s a (possibly tenuous, and definitely 12-year-old-humour) link with its color. Pink = areola, so obvious.
But blue? For colon-cancer awareness?
Though we all know why they couldn’t choose the most obvious color, brown: Everyone would spend the day being mistaken for UPS deliverypersons.
