Why Is the Medical Community Confounded Over the Sudden Surge of Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Children?

DECEMBER 9, 2016 by ELDON DAHL

Canadian doctors have noted that the rates of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in children havegrown exponentially. Generally, the disease would show around age 20. Recently, though, prevalence in children under 5 has been increasing.

The highest Crohn’s disease incidence is reported in Canada while highest ulcerative colitis rates are reported for Denmark, Iceland, and the United States. Researchers suspect that a combination of factors could be to blame, including diet, genetics, environment,impaired immune response, and low vitamin D.Dr. Eric Benchimol, a pediatric gastroenterologist at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, commented, “You speak to some of the older doctors who have been practicing for 20 or 30 years, they almost never saw children under five (diagnosed).Now it’s almost a regular occurrence.”

The medical community seems stymied over the cause of IBD and fail to connect the dots right before their eyes. Clearly, they are quoting that the older practicing doctors for 20 to 30 years as never having seen such a crisis, and the question that begs to be answered is this: what have we done as a society that is different and common practice today that did not exist 20 to 30 years ago? For one, we never had glyphosate sprayed on most of our GMO food crops and such highly processed food additives. And while we did have heavy amounts of antibiotics in the food and by prescriptions, it was not in conjunction with these new death eaters.

If researchers can agree that environmental factors contribute to IBD, they should be willing to look at all environmental factors–including those promoted by the medical community.

A 2012studypublished inPediatricsfollowed children from approx. age 2 to age 19 and tracked their prescribed antibiotics. These children had no history of IBD, but there was an 84% risk increase for developing it. The younger the child’s age, the greater the risk–the average risk increaseper courseof antibiotics was 6%, and also compounded when multiple antibiotics were given at once.

There have also been some studies examining the link between vaccines and IBD. AretractedLancetstudynoted that in 8 of the 12 children studied, parents noticed behavioural changes following MMR vaccines. All 12 of the children developed intestinal abnormalities.

Digestive Diseases and Sciencesreleased a study noting that the measles virus may be present in the intestine of patients with Crohn’s disease. In the study, while those with Crohn’s disease had a wild strain of measles virus, those who had ulcerative colitis, as well as those who had autism, had vaccine measles strains.

While IBD is devastating, diligence can curb the risk. Be aware of antibiotics, vaccines, and GMO foods, as they can all affect the gut. For extra security, consider Laktokhan Probiotic and our Full Spectrum Digestive Enzyme. Laktokhan is blister packed, shelf stable, and only feeds good bacteria. Full Spectrum Digestive Enzyme is great for promoting digestion, with ox bile, papain, and kale.
