Things I'd Like To Avoid

"...These results do not support the hypothesis of a common aetiology in diverticular disease and colonic cancer but suggest a causal relationship between diverticular disease and cancer of the left colon."
"...This risk increased the longer the follow up (p value for trend < 0.001)...."
My diverticular symptoms went away after 16 years once I stopped eating wheat and seed oils.  They returned the few times I've cheated or made a mistake.  I'm inclined to believe that there is a common aetiology, at least I'm not going to take any chances.
