Summary. This paper is focused on the awareness of public regarding prevention of colorectal carcinoma and education in this field. If we look at the lives of our ancestors, we can see that our lives are far more comfortable. Technologies that surround us in every step we take make our lives easier but our pace is faster and faster and that takes toll on our lifestyle – we have less exercise outdoors, bad eating habits, we smoke, drink alcohol, we use drugs and we do not sleep enough. All these factors create stress and strain. Unhealthy lifestyle has lead to overall deterioration of people’s health, cardiovascular diseases, mental disorders or increase of tumor diseases. In the Czech Republic, colorectal carcinoma holds the second position in the incidence of tumor diseases and Czech men have the highest incidence of colorectal carcinoma in the world. That is why it is so important to make prevention a part of our lives to try to avoid this serious disease.
