I don't think Mike intended to be insulting with his comment. I think he is trying to point out that all of us with UC try so hard to find a food, a diet, or a supplement to be the magic element to gain remission. We have all been desperate to find and latch on to anything that reduces are symptoms and make us feel better. This is why many of us are willing to try just about anything, including spending lots of money on scams, to improve our situation. When I had UC I had similar experiences and spent lots of money chasing the elusive remission. If pineapple makes you feel better and reduces your symptoms, continue to enjoy it!
