I have been robbed, it seems. Most of January has been stolen, I don’t know where it has gone. I certainly wasn’t hibernating since according to my log I ate and posted everyday. The missing days remain a mystery, and they will never come back.

This research finding will create confusion. For over 40 years, scientists and physicians have thought eating a high-fibre diet lowered a person’s risk of diverticulosis. A new US study of 2,104 people shows this may not be accurate. The study found that eating high fibre diets raised, as opposed to lowered, the risks of developing diverticulosis. The study also suggests the commonly-held belief that constipation increases the risk of the disease is not proven, as more frequent bowel movements actually increases a person’s risk.
Anne Peery, MD, lead researcher for the study says more research is needed before doctors change dietary recommendations. So while the findings create confusion, it seems we don’t need to do much but wait for more research (and confusion). This may take time. Low fibre diet and constipation is not fun so I am not planning on making changes to my diet!
Diverticulosis is a disease of the large intestine in which pouches develop in the colon wall. I have never heard of it before. If you are interesting in learning more, Wikipedia has a thorough definition.
