thanks. two good reads are "Omnivore's Dilemma" and "Survival of the Sickest."
The first book talks about how corn and federal policy regarding corn cultivation has changed our economy, way of life, health, killed small farms, and is now in so much of our food as high fructose corn syrup...none of these changes are for the better.
The second book talks about just some of the things in our environment, including stress and nutrition, that can affect our genes and health. about how some triggers in our body are switched on and off.
It also mentions Crohn's in passing, saying many Crohn's patients are vitamin D deficient and that some of them are being treated for this by spending time in tanning booths.
