Does anyone have any information, articles, study information on this?
I started thinking about the process of the colon, the ulcers, and how bleeding would occur. Something, like seeds scraping it? Or more intense contractions to move something like a potato skin or corn kernel through the colon? Why would some of us have it only occasionally?
If we didn't eat food but only used liquids that had adequate nutrition, would our colons stop bleeding? Has anyone tried this?
It would be interesting to see some kind of graphic on how food moves through the body, food is digested, and is processed in the colon.
