Help research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Diet continue to expand and evolve.
Medicine evolves through research. For years healthcare has ignored diet in inflammatory bowel disease. An often quoted statement was 'there is just no evidence' that diet impacts disease. Although this statement was technically correct; it was naive. There was no evidence because medicine had not done the research. In our journey to find the true impact of diet in inflammatory bowel disease, we have faced many challenges including skepticism from our peers and lack of funding resources. It was and is, the IBD philanthropists who continue to support us in our mission of fully understanding diets effect on health and disease.
