Of the many challenges that North Americans face, problems with the digestive system are among the most dangerous. Problems with the large intestines, more commonly known as the colon, are among the top of that list. According to the Royal Society of Medicine of Great Britain "More than 65 different health challenges are caused by a toxic colon." Many illnesses and disease are directly related to improper digestion of food and inadequate care of our bowels. Our bodies come with a complete system of checks and balances to determine which substances are useful and which are waste. However, our environment and lifestyles have compromised, and in most cases, damaged the quality of this system to do an adequate job of protecting us from illness and disease.
