Here are some interesting points from the article that I condensed for you:

-three of four offspring in mothers that had measles during pregnancy developed severe Crohn’s later in life.
-recurrent antibiotic-resistant pneumonia preceded the Crohn’s in every case.
-an eight-year-old girl who was treated with antibiotics for recurrent upper respiratory tract infections developed intestinal candidiasis, an overgrowth of the yeast Candida albicans, in the gut.

-average intake of carbohydrates (including bread, potatoes, and refined sugars) much greater in those who developed IBD than in those who did not
-carbs commonly contaminated with fungal toxins

-When antibiotics are taken for various purposes -the normal, protective bacteria are eliminated, and yeast growth goes unchecked.
-people with Crohn’s often have aflatoxin, a mycotoxin made by Aspergillus molds, in their blood.
-Many people have successfully treated their Celiac disease by not only avoiding grains altogether -- especially corn -- but also including antifungal medications in their treatment regimen.

-Blastomyces dermatitidis, a fungus, can produce “granulomatous” lesions in the intestines.
-Histoplasma produces intestinal disease with symptoms such as diarrhea, weight loss, fever, and abdominal pain

- Most antibiotics are mycotoxins -- fungal derivatives, commonly found in our grain food supply. Mycotoxins can suppress our normal immune function.
- researchers at the Washington University did a study where they offered patients with Crohn’s disease an immune stimulant
- of the initial 15 patients in the study,12 did “significantly” better overall, while eight went into complete remission
- by giving an immune booster, these doctors were able to put 53 percent of the cases into total remission.

-you can boost your immune system much less expensively and without a prescription by taking beta-glucans
-Using probiotics - is also extremely vital in reversing antibiotic damage, since these good bacteria can keep yeast and fungi from re-establishing themselves in the intestines.

I'm one of the believers that there is a "fungus link" to diseases...............

well what I find really amazing is the immuno-booster study - almost hard to believe.

Not sure I truly understand much of the post but this interested me -
"

I had measles when pregnant for my first son - he is 46 and seems fine.
 
Also, would you consider the fungus I have under my stomach, etc. as same as the article is talking about inside?

They've come to the realization that our immune system is malfunction, works inappropriately so they don't really say it's over or under active anymore just that it's malfunctioned.

kops2da its not the same kind of fungus. The fungi they are talking about are more along the lines of the ones you would treat with meds like Fluconazole. For example, Blastomyces dermatitidis, Candida spp., Coccidioides immitis, Histoplasma capsulatum, ect.
Im wondering has anyone ever tried any anti-fungals like itraconazole or fluconazole for whatever reason?

Also about the measles link, I believe they only looked at people who alredy had Chron's and not every mother who had measles during pregnancy. That means that if you had measles during pregnancy it doesnt imply anything related to that study - its probably a small fraction of those that were examined.

Sorry - thought fungus was fungus.  I use
miconazole like for athlete's feet.  It appears everywhere in creases and sometimes in vagina.  I am obese and hard to keep areas dry when you have night sweats.  Just wondered if it could be related.  Seems worse since UC.  ElaineNY

Sure could be related. Your skin condition is an indicator of what is going on inside your body. Obesity can be linked to fungus, as well. Think about what makes bread rise.................
