Wisconsinites can prevent one of the most common forms of cancer, and it can be as simple as having some veggies with our brats. It's Colon Cancer Awareness Month, and in Wisconsin, the disease is the No. 3 leading form of cancer for men, and No. 2 for women. Beth Lunow with the American Cancer Society of Wisconsin says the disease is preventable, in part by watching what we eat, especially during barbecue season.

"Heading into the spring and summer months here, we do need to watch our intake of brats and cheese, and just make sure we're keeping things balanced with fruits and vegetables."

Lunow emphasizes that eating less red meat and getting more exercise can cut the risk of colon cancer. And colonoscopies can spot the warning signs, so that polyps can be removed before cancer develops. She suggests that people over 50 should talk to a doctor about colon cancer tests. More Wisconsinites are getting screened, in part because of Katie Couric and other celebrities raising awareness.

"As more and more people in the public eye are saying they've gotten screened, and that it's ok, and it's easy to do, we've seen an increase in people getting screened and identifying the risk and getting the polyp and getting cured."
