The Life Insurance Market
Life insurance premiums could be sold at more competitive prices for residents of one south-west town, thanks to the distribution of kits designed to detect bowel cancer.
The self-test kits are being sent to all men and women in their 60s currently living in the town of Swindon, in Wiltshire.
Bowel cancer is the third most common form of the disease in the UK, with more than eight out of ten bowel cancer cases being suffered by people aged 60 or over.
People living in the town would be advised to compare life insurance, as health bosses say more than 100 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer each year, resulting in an average of 43 deaths.
Spokesperson from NHS Swindon, Frances Mayes, said: "If bowel cancer is detected at an early stage, there is over a 90 per cent chance of survival."
