I'm wondering if anyone has been diagnosed Crohn's disease here despite
1.Avoiding all vaccinations
or 2.Being breastfed for a long time (more than a 6 months)
or 3.On a vegan diet or something close to it before diagnosis

Thanks! yeah

I was breastfed until I was almost 1 year old and all my siblings were too. I am the only one who developed Crohns. I think these 3 things have nothing to do with getting Crohns. More than likely in my case it might have been all the antibiotics they gave me as a child for my allergies, or my starting smoking at 13. JMHO

My mom said that she had to give me soy milk when I was a baby because I couldn't tolerate regular milk....

yeah, I don't think any of those three things have anything to do with getting crohns, it runs in familys and sometimes it doesnt, I just know i've always had a hard time tolerating food, I spent alot of time in the hospital as a baby, I was also almost a month premature due to my mom having a horribe Crohns flare and getting an infection while she was still pregnant with me.
