Actress Taraji P. Henson recently opened up to Elle that she was diagnosed with the intestinal disease gastritis. She says that her doctors said her it was a result of her poor food choices and pressing food guilt. “It was just over a period of time, my stomach got a hole in it, and it was about to lead to an ulcer, but I caught it in time,” she says.
But for the rest of us, what is gastritis? And are we at risk like Taraji?
