Bowel cancer is the second biggest cancer killer in Australia, so it’s time to get talking!

Australian cricketing great, Merv Hughes, is Australia’s latest talkshow host. Introducing The Talking Sh!t Show, with Wendy Harmer, Richard Wilkins, Gavin Wanganeen and Dr Ginni Mansberg fighting it out for the title of the best ‘sh!t talker’.

As Hughes puts it, “We want Australians to start talking sh!t, seriously, and to save lives.”

Bowel cancer is Australia’s second-biggest cancer killer. It can develop without symptoms, but if detected early it can be successfully treated or even prevented in more than 90% of cases.

This is why screening to detect bowel cancer in its early stages, when treatment can be most effective, is the key to saving lives.

The aim of the campaign is to encourage Australians aged 50-74 to complete the simple, free screening test when it arrives in the post from the Australian Government.
