    Diverticular disease is one of the most preventable causes of death there is. Every year, some 4,000 people, three quarters of them women, die as a result of this digestive disorder, which is caused by enflamed diverticula, or pouches, in the colon. Diverticulitis is extremely common, and a half to two thirds of all people in Europe and North America will experience it. There are currently an estimated 60,000 new cases of diverticulitis a year in the UK, with a total of 450,000 thought to be suffering at any one time.

    Apart from being painful and embarrassing, Ulcerative Colitis can severely disrupt a sufferer's life. Part of the intestine becomes inflamed and develops ulcers leading to the colon becoming inflamed preventing water from being absorbed resulting in symptoms including intense diarrhoea, cramps, abdominal pain, illness, and most worryingly bowel incontinence. There are about 90,000 sufferers in the UK and this is the first book which focuses in Ulcerative Colitis alone.
