New Study Reveals People Fail to Move Their Bowels Regularly
(PRWEB) July 24, 2007 — Shocking revelations were found in a report released this week with concern to the bowel movements of individuals. In a compilation of empirical data looking at 32,473 human subjects, it worryingly found that over fifty-seven per cent (57%) moved their bowels less than once a day, according to McKeith Research Ltd based in London.

There is also evidence linking constipation to colonic cancer. Lack of dietary fibre and insufficient time to relax are the major factors that lead to an infrequent bowel action”.
Under the direction of Gillian McKeith, the Personal Health Profile provides online nutritional programmes to help correct impacted bowels and other health related areas. “People need to move their poos at least once or twice daily for ultimate health. It is impossible to feel well if you don’t empty out the rubbish from your insides every day,” asserts Gillian McKeith, the TV nutritionist who is known as the first to examine bowel movements of people on the television……
