During the sixth-annual Asian Heritage Street Celebration on Saturday (5/15), make sure you take a stroll through the 'super colon,' a 20-foot interactive inflatable colon showing you an example of healthy colon tissues, as well as polyps at various stages.
The giant squeamishness is brought to you by the California Colon Cancer Control Program in an effort to "raise awareness about the importance of early colon cancer detection." Because, as the CCCCP tells us, "Unlike many other cancers, colon cancer is preventable, treatable, and beatable with proper screening."

Where: The Sixth-Annual Asian Heritage Street Celebration at Civic Center on Larkin Street from the Asian Art Museum (at Grove Street) to Little Saigon (on Ellis Street).
