The Poo Song

I dare you to listen to this all the way through and not find yourself humming ‘Test your poo…’ afterwards – a brilliant little video campaign from Scotland, hosted on Tumblr, using pester power to get children and younger people to encourage older people to test for bowel cancer. Government can do funny, it turns out:

Here’s a little ditty called ‘The Poo Song’ telling all older folk to test their poo. 

9 out of 10 people survive bowel cancer if caught early but the early signs are often hidden. So, tell your mum, dad and your second Uncle Vlad to take the test.

Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland and the risk getting it increases with age. That’s why the test is posted through every 50-74 year old’s door once every two years. If anyone you know is that age, show them this video and get them to test their poo.
