Class Discussion Question
Digestive disorders are nothing new. As long as humans have consumed food, there have been problems with digestion. Now think about how human nutrition has changed over time and across geographical locations.
Identify a digestive disorder that is closely linked to a particular time or place.
For example, a lower incidence of colorectal cancer has been documented in parts of the world where the local diet consists primarily of fresh fruits and vegetables with low consumption of cooked red meat. (Note: colorectal cancer is an example—please do not use this disorder in your discussion.)
Discuss the causes and symptoms of your chosen disorder and possible treatment options.
Include information on the role of diet in mitigating or treating symptoms of the disorder.
Cite at least two scholarly sources in your response. These can include sources in our LEO course.
