Fed Slashes Rate to 0.25%

The US Fed has now cut the interest rate to 0.25%, basically at 0, and it’s possible we will see negative interest rates in the coming weeks. Everything in monetary policy has been already done, the US Fed must inject liquidity into the credit market to influence lending. Given inflation and the low interest rates, the smart thing to do financially would be to spend/lend money, and that`s exactly what the Fed wants banks to do. Consumer loans are drying up, given inflation and a negative rate, it will arguably force banks to lend money. The fed has done everything it can to get the credit market going, and I really think we will see negative interest rates to kick-start lending and spending.

Colon cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Irrespective of family history, everyone is exposed to the risk. About 90% of colon cancer cases begin from non-cancerous tumors, polyps, which could form in the large bowel. Screening with a colonoscopy will painlessly remove any polyps hence almost entirely reducing your risk of developing the horrible disease. The good news is that about 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a simple (yes, simple) colonoscopy.
