FIRST-WORLD (GUT) PROB­LEMS

Alternative Medicine - - Health News & Tips -

In a re­cent study com­par­ing rates of in­ci­dence and death from col­orec­tal (bowel) can­cer in 184 coun­tries, a higher risk of both was found in in­hab­i­tants of coun­tries with more eco­nom­i­cal de­vel­op­ment. Ac­cord­ing to the study, bowel can­cer has now re­placed in­fec­tion-re­lated can­cers as the sec­ond most preva­lent in sev­eral mid­dle in­come coun­tries, and it will only be­come more com­mon as th­ese coun­tries’ economies ac­cel­er­ate. Re­cently, ex­tremely de­vel­oped coun­tries such as the USA, Aus­tralia, and New Zealand have ex­pe­ri­enced sta­bi­liza­tion or de­cline in in­ci­dence and death.
