Digestive Disease Awareness Month: What's Going Down with Digestive Health?
Date:4/30/2013

SAN BRUNO, Calif., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to making big decisions, popular advice says "follow your gut," an adage that will surely ring true this May during the 25th anniversary of National Digestive Disease Awareness Month. When a national awareness month was first declared by President Reagan in 1988, digestive diseases were ranked second highest among all causes of disability due to illness and accounted for one-tenth of the costs associated with illness for the entire country. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 60-70 million Americans are affected by digestive diseases, and digestive diseases account for more than 13.5 million hospitalizations each year. Studies show that approximately 70-80% of the body's immune cells are housed in the gut, meaning digestive health plays an influential role in optimizing overall health. Because matters of the gut aren't a particularly popular topic for daily conversation, digestive disorders don't receive as much attention as other forms of illness, leaving many people unaware of how their digestive health can directly influence their overall well-being. For Digestive Disease Awareness Month, registered dietitian Kerry Neville encourages everyone to get in touch with their "gut feelings" by learning about ways to support proper digestive health.
