As part of my health regime about every 3 years I have a colonoscopy. This year as a back-up check they’re simultaneously doing a gastroscopy; specifically the same thing only at the beginning and not the end of the alimentary system.

Immediately following that emphatic sentence is the advice,
Unless patients are expected to take clear fluids by injections or some sort of osmosis process, that ludicrous contradictory advice is yet further testimony of the now proven fact that the current generation is less intellectually competent than its predecessor.
Perhaps it could be forgiven as an oversight were the two sentences in different parts of the brochure but for God’s sake, one immediately follows the other. The author should be flogged.
