This is from my personal experience, no actual scientific proof. I was eating a frozen fruit, triple-berry mix every day, thawed, with cereal, including blackberries. I started having rectal bleeding, sometimes it was painful going to bathroom. I read everything I could on the web; frightening. One day I realized when I'm chewing, that some of the fruit have a very hard, sharp texture. I narrowed it down to the blackberries. I thought, 'if they feel sharp in my mouth, perhaps they could also cut soft tissue in my bowels or rectum.' I stopped eating blackberries. Soon the bleeding decreased. I wonder if it took a little time to heal. Fairly soon the bleeding stopped and has not returned. Someone should experiment with this, and leave feedback if you are experiencing the same and eating blackberries. I could be wrong, but that's my experience.

I had been suffering from rectal bleeding for the past 6 months, and was taking medications, but with no relief. I later took a cup of cold milk with equal volume of lemon juice empty stomach for three days. It has been a week, I don't see the bleeding.

Sometimes I bleed rectally when I go the bathroom. It happens sometimes not always.
