|The ElainesChildren list archives are full of wonderful info about SCD.
It is the only searchable list where Elaine Gottschall participated.
How to use the search engine:
If you are interested in egg allergy you type :egg allergy Then click on
"all". If you do not click on "all" you will get every post about eggs
and every post about allergy.

|...whole grain and bran products are being promoted as health foods without adequate appreciation of their dangers. These show up not only as digestive problems, Crohn's disease and colitis, but also as the mental disorders associated with celiac disease.
Grains require careful preparation because they contain a number of antinutrients that can cause serious health problems. Phytic acid, for example, is an organic acid in which phosphorus is bound. It is mostly found in the bran or outer hull of seeds. Untreated phytic acid can combine with calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and especially zinc in the intestinal tract and block their absorption. This is why a diet high in improperly prepared whole grains may lead to serious mineral deficiencies and bone loss. The modern misguided practice of consuming large amounts of unprocessed bran often improves colon transit time at first but may lead to irritable bowel syndrome and, in the long term, many other adverse effects.
Other antinutrients in whole grains include enzyme inhibitors which can inhibit digestion and put stress on the pancreas; irritating tannins; complex sugars which the body cannot break down; and gluten and related hard-to-digest proteins which may cause allergies, digestive disorders and even mental illness.

I read about a new theory that Crohn's disease is caused by a bacteria, MAP, that can be transmitted by meat and dairy that is not ultra-pateurized. Since many here are doing raw dairy, what about the dangers? See: http://www.crohns.org/
