LOS ANGELES TIMES PUBLISHES STORY OF POTENTIAL LINK BETWEEN CROHN'S AND MILK
Major U.S. newspaper overcomes censorship barrier
Times medical writer Thomas Maugh pulls no punches -- lays out facts
Two articles tell the story of how Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) is implicated as a cause of Crohn's disease -- how the "sacrosanct" beverage milk may be guilty of transmitting MAP infection to our children -- and how doctors have dramatically helped patients by treating them with a regimen of anti-Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis medications.
The two Los Angeles Times articles are linked here:
Plenty of Relief ... and Skepticism. Increasing numbers of Crohn's sufferers are benefiting from antibiotics, but most scientists say there's not enough evidence to prove bacterial infection is the culprit.
The (Cleveland Ohio) Free Times first broke this story on June 16, 1999 with an article by Lisa Chamberlain entitled:
This story was voted one of the top 25 censored news stories of 1999.
