Here are some more links for you that I found interesting that I'm sure you won't read, FSLondon:
Even the researchers in the studies I posted initially state that more research is needed before being able to say anything definitively; however, they have helped quite a few patients with a plant-based diet. There's not any money to be made in prescribing fruits and veggies, unfortunately. What would their ulterior motive be...?
One more -- this study involved over 67,000 women.
"RESULTS: Among 67,581 participants (705,445 person-years, mean follow-up since completion of the baseline dietary questionnaire 10.4 years), we validated 77 incident IBD cases. High total protein intake, specifically animal protein, was associated with a significantly increased risk of IBD, (hazards ratio for the third vs. first tertile and 95% confidence interval being 3.31 and 1.41-7.77 (P trend=0.007), and 3.03 and 1.45-6.34 (P trend=0.005) for total and animal protein, respectively). Among sources of animal protein, high consumption of meat or fish but not of eggs or dairy products was associated with IBD risk.
CONCLUSIONS: High protein intake is associated with an increased risk of incident IBD in French middle-aged women."
