Small and Large Intestine Diseases and Conditions
Diseases of the small and large bowel are linked to family history and the connection between these elements has been the result of years of research. Researchers have discovered the gene that connects a certain type of colon cancer to the Ashkenazi Jewish population, and are active in understanding the genetic underpinnings of Crohn’s disease. The importance of this research helps patient identify potential health risks early, so they can live healthy, long lives without the threat of terminal illness.
