Man Experiencing Abdominal Pain
In this image, a man is hunched over with pain, gripping his belly. Abdominal pain can be caused by a multitude of underlying problems. They can range from being harmless stomach cramps, to appendicitis, to a serious viral infection. The pain can be general or localized, or occur as a result of a problem elsewhere in the body. Environmental toxins have been linked to everything from early onset of puberty in girls, birth defects, breast cancer, autoimmune disorders, allergies, respiratory and intestinal irritation, and more.
