Gastrointestinal disease is a major cause of ill-health worldwide. In developing countries infection and malnutrition are common. For example, over a billion people are infested with roundworms and hookworms, and amoebiasis affects over 10% of the world’s population. Poor hygiene and malnutrition allows the spread of infective organisms and many infections could be prevented by improved sanitation and education.
In developed countries, much of the work-load is due to non-organic disorders, which are also becoming a worldwide problem. Nevertheless approximately 20% of all cancers occur in the gastrointestinal tract.
