    Funny enough, IBS, as to how such related things are often generalized, is also attributed to the psyche by some medical folks. Because it's impossible to consider that the significantly increased amounts of gluten, sugars and hormones could lead to it. Just like it is a coincidence that children's puberty shifts to earlier and earlier ages.

    "Up to 20% of people worldwide develop gastrointestinal symptoms following a meal" Not exactly sure what this means. Does it mean 20% have regular issues, or that 80% of people have never had gastrointestinal symptoms following a meal (which surely cannot be the case)?

    A major contributing factor is child obesity that has increased in the last 2+ decades. Perhaps because of higher levels of the fat-regulating hormone leptin?

    There's also a study (studies) that indicate associations to chemicals (phthalates etc) in products. I can't believe the amount of products people (mostly young women) apply to their skin that disrupt hormones.

    Mystery illnesses in young women could be in part due to cosmetic product toxicity.

    It's funny how mouse models of human disease are considered highly unreliable, but animal models of toxicity are somehow considered safe and reliable.
