How Titanium Dioxide In Foods can Worsen Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Inflammatory bowel disease encompasses ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease and is characterized by attacks and remissions of abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea. The exact etiology is not known but a complex interplay of genetic and environmental factors are thought to play a role. Titanium dioxide, a food grade additive in the form of nanoparticles is added to several foods and may be actually doing more harm than we realize, including increasing intestinal inflammation and worsening existing IBD.
