Hemorrhoids is a common problem among people usually lacking fibers in their diets and also due to the prolonged constipation. Almost every adult in a country eventually develop hemorrhoids - half of us have them by age 50. It is now estimated that over 25 million Americans are affected where as in Pakistan 25% of population is suffering from hemorrhoids. One day as I was searching about different diseases in Pakistan I came to know that atleast one family member of almost every family suffers from this painful disease in Pakistan.
