In 1985, between 60 and 70 million Americans were affected by digestive disorders. Today it's close to 100 million. In fact, digestive disorders are responsible for over 50 million physician visits and more hospitalizations than any other category of medical problems in the United States today. The total cost to the American public for all aspects of digestive disease is well over $100,000,000,000.00 per year. It is worth noting that doctors have related many other diseases (besides the obvious ones such as constipation, diverticular disease, hemorrhoids, IBS, colitis, and Crohn's disease) to the bowel. These include: diabetes, gallstones, kidney stones, gout, hypertension, varicose veins, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and obesity. Due to these risks, it is very important to understand how to care for your colon, and your entire digestive tract, to protect yourself from today's world of unhealthy diets.
