When I was a kid we only had shots, for antibiotics I think,but later in childhood may have had oral.
Talking early to mid 1950's,doc would come to the house then, with his black bag.
I can remember being really sick at times, and yet running away due to the expected shot.
Also not just genetics but epigenetics, known from twin studies in identical twins, one has
IBD the other does not.
Since I have two sons with colitis, what is it, genetics, epigenitics we were all exposed to something,
or it is contagious,or a combo. Then again my wife's colon is pristine per scope.
The again there are couples where one has IBD and the other gets it after marriage.
