Why has digestive health gained more attention in recent years?

"I believe that this reflects a greater awareness in the community of issues related to nutrition, diet and digestion. Furthermore, there have been quite dramatic changes in the incidence of certain digestive disorders such as reflux (GERD) in recent years, a greater willingness to talk openly about digestive complaints, such as irritable bowel, and a widespread realization that some serious digestive disorders, such as colon cancer, can be prevented by attention to diet and lifestyle." -- ACG President Dr. Eamonn Quigley
