There are two numerical errors in the penultimate sentence of the abstract. The abstract should read "Among the lifetimes of 100,000 average-risk patients, the number of cancers could be reduced from 4,857 to 1,393 and the number of CRC deaths from 1,782 to 457, while saving CAN$68 per person." The error occurred as the numbers 1,393 and 1,782 were accidentally switched within the sentence. The correct numbers are outlined in Table 5 and properly described in the results and discussion sections.
