Are You a Gut Reader?

Did you know there's a magazine called Gut? Me either!

It's intended for doctors who specialize in ... guts. 

And look at that cover! It shows a patient with diverticulosis. It's what when your intestine grows little pouches because you’re not eating enough fiber. 

In the photo, the green parts are diverticulosis pouches. The intestine is pink. And this is actually the last part of the intestine (called the colon), just before it hits the rectum.

You’re welcome.

You may be thinking, “Sure I could subscribe to GUT, but where would I read it?” Well, besides a stool, you could read Gut on the toilet.

Where better to remember to eat more fiber?
