Don't you think it is so amazing they can do all this research to find out what is wrong but there aren't a lot of drugs without side effect to help out there? Kind of sad but perhaps when they know more about what is wrong, they can fix it for us.

Very interesting. If the conclusions for the second article stand, it will make it difficult for anyone to claim that diet is not an important factor in UC. But is it the uptake of LPS (made possible by diet) that causes the auto-immune response mentioned in the abstract? Hmm...
Diagnosed with UC in 1990.
Current Meds: Sulfasalazine & Folic Acid.
Supplements: fish oil, flax oil, glucosamine, CoQ10, fiber, aloe vera juice, probiotics.
Other: Raw Milk for breakfast. Currently exploring a raw milk fast one day/week.

Thought I would add more fat to the fire, perhaps veggie oils are killing us.
This is a news article taken from gut.
