  Annually there are some 134,000 new cases and 55,000 deaths from colorectal cancer, making it the second most prevalent cause of death from a malignancy in the Unites States. These statistics should be reducible because colorectal cancer is an ideal condition for screening. It affects 6% of the population, and if caught early, it is readily cured or actually prevented. Screening is now endorsed by the United Sates Preventative Task Force, the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, the American Cancer Society, and every relevant professional society and will be paid for by Medicare and other third-payer parties. Which of the following recommendations is made for an average-risk individual by a recent multidisciplinary consensus panel?

A: Begin screening at 60 years of age
B: Begin screening at 50 years of age
C: Begin screening at 40 years of age
D: Begin screening at 30 years of age
E: Begin screening at 10 years of age
