Mind-boggling, isn't it?!
It doesn't actually surprise me at all, now --- I make an oatmeal cookie that is 130ish calories each, but I use applesauce instead of oil and only 1/4 cup of brown sugar for the batch of 20. A similar recipe that I saw uses 1 cup of oil and 2 (yup, really!) cups of sugar. That would make the calorie count over 400 easily, and that's before adding any nuts or raisins or chocolate.
I'm constantly shaking my head when I see the calorie and nutrition counts on purchased items and compare them to what I make myself...

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
