The National aired a clip about the link between mycobacterium paratuberculosis and crohn's.  Please visit this link and leave a comment.  The more feedback the better. Thanks Map-Canada

Thanks! That was very informative and interesting. I wonder if this would further explain why there is less instances of IBD in Asian countries. Further, have there been studies regarding people who practice the Hindu religion and do not eat cow?
26 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.
