the one year old... I think he got it through his mothers milk ... today we find lots of elements and supstances in breastmilk and the placenta that should not be there and are a direct consequence of modern life
to quote the article:
"The mystery was resolved in 1984, when a microbiologist at Brown's University, Dr. Rodrick Chiodini, demonstrated that m. paratuberculosis sheds its cell wall in humans, and takes a new form, called a spheroblast. In a landmark study, Dr. Chiodini cultured Mycobacteria from children infected with Crohn's. "
So MAP gets into children... we need to indentify how and stop it... It might not cause Crohns but it still is not good
as for the MAP theory... I am not a doctor but I do think that the cause of Crohns is infectious but can't be sure is it MAP or E. Coli or something else... if you look at the documentary "Food Inc" you'll learn that we eat a lot of fecies, bacteria, antibiotics and other elements through our milk and meat that should not be there in the first place... I believe thats the root of all evil for us ..one of those things could be the cause of Crohns but then again all of those things could do it also (just think of all the different areas Crohns affects)
