2. Causes of Polyps

The causes of polyps depend on where they appear. For example, colon polyps usually appear due to unhealthy lifestyles such as eating high-fat foods and lots of red meat, not eating enough fiber, smoking, and obesity.

Another example is throat polyps, which usually appear due to injuries to the throat from shouting all the time. Teachers are likely to get throat polyps.
