Modern Life is Making Us All Constipated

Here’s the Poop..or maybe not


  • At least 16% of Americans – including a third of people over 60 – experience chronic constipation
  • The number of people admitted to hospitals has more than doubled since 1997 
  • It can have major complications including anal fissures and hemorrhoids when not treated 
  • The huge uptick can be linked to the high-fat Western diet and lack of fiber
  • It can also be linked to Americans’ sedentary lifestyles and lack of exercise
