Re: Extreme Effects of Pile
Well WealthyDon you've certainly made yourself a pile so you should be able to tell him the answer. (Sorry couldn't resist it). The truth is that nobody knows what causes hemorrhoids but it is commonly associated with people who put a lot of strain on the gut muscles through exertion. But it does seem to be a problem associated with a more affluent lifestyle because people in poorer countries who exert themselves don't seem to suffer from the problem. Diet appears to play an important role. Countries that consume too much processed food and lack fibre intake suffer most.
