A social ceremony invented by the devil for the gratification of his servants and the plaguing of his enemies. The introduction attains its most malevolent development in this century, being, indeed, closely related to our political system. Every American being the equal of every other American, it follows that everybody has the right to know everybody else, which implies the right to introduce without request or permission. The Declaration of Independence should have read thus: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, and the right to make that of another miserable by thrusting upon him an incalculable quantity of acquaintances; liberty, particularly the liberty to introduce persons to one another without first ascertaining if they are not already acquainted as enemies; and the pursuit of another's happiness with a running pack of strangers."

The purpose of this booklet is to provide information about an inherited type of colon cancer that may be more common among men and women of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage (Jews of Eastern European or Russian ancestry). The information provided is intended to add to, and is not a substitute for, discussions with doctors, genetic counselors, nurses, and other members of the health care team. We encourage you to read the entire booklet in the order in which it was written, since each section is built upon information in preceding sections. We emphasize the need for regularly scheduled, thorough medical examinations for persons who already have had colorectal cancer. Equally important, relatives at risk for this condition need to have regular examinations.
