A member asked:

Dr. oz says that eating a lot of starch can lead to appendicitis, because it has a longer chance to cause fecaliths. is that true?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Could: Dr. Oz is referring to decreased intestinal transit times with carbohydrates or starches. Anything that does this could increase the likelihood of fecaliths and subsequent appendicitis or even diverticulitis for that matter.
