conditions that disrupt their lives. More Americans are hospitalized

for digestive diseases than for any other type of illness.

-- Nearly one in four cancer deaths is related to the digestive system.

-- The annual costs associated with digestive diseases have continued to

rise to an all time high of more than $85 billion and the magnitude of

this problem is increasing rapidly.

-- Since 1985, the number of people suffering digestive health problems

in the United States has climbed by 20 percent. By 2025, the United

States population's average life expectancy will increase from 77 to

82 years. Because many digestive diseases occur as people age,

incidences may skyrocket.

The AGA is dedicated to the mission of advancing the science and practice of gastroenterology. Founded in 1897, the AGA is one of the oldest medical-specialty societies in the United States. The AGA's more than 15,000 members include physicians and scientists who research, diagnose and treat disorders of the gastrointestinal tract and liver.

The AGA Foundation for Digestive Health and Nutrition (FDHN) is the foundation of the AGA. The Foundation's ultimate mission mirrors that of the AGA: to improve the human condition through understanding, preventing, diagnosing and curing digestive diseases. Separately incorporated and governed by a distinguished board of AGA physicians and the lay public, the Foundation raises funds for research and public education. Donors to the Foundation include AGA physicians, patients and family members of those who suffer from digestive diseases, national foundations and the pharmaceutical industry. For more information, visit the Foundation's Web site at http://www.fdhn.org. Donors interested in contributing t
