With my problem with diverticulitis, my doctor put me on a high fiber diet a couple of years ago and I haven't had an attack since.
What he didn't tell me was that fiber produces a lot of extra gas. Now I don't want to have any more diverticulitis attacks but having earned the name "Thunderbutt" at the office sure cuts down on SSSPPPPPZZZZZTTT!!! dates.
I.B. SSSPPPPZZZZZZZZZZZTTTTT!!! Moleturd
