Thanks for the links. I had read an article similar to this but it was from 1999-2000, I believe. This info definately makes you wonder. The article I read stated they did a study on a group of moderate to severe crohn's patients. 92% of them had the same MAP bacteria in thier system as cattle infected with jones disease. They used a MAP bacterium drug therapy and 80% of them showed improvement. It also said, they proved that a percent of MAP could live through the pasterization process but the study was overlooked. As it is considered a bacteria of animals and not of humans. I will try to find that article.
