IBD in Canadian children increasing 7% per year - Nov 2016

Inflammatory bowel diseases surge among Canadian kids

  • "IBD includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, conditions that cause inflammation in the digestive tract, leading to chronic diarrhea, blood in the stool, abdominal pains and weight loss."
  • "A new study, which analyzed data from five Canadian provinces, has found that cases
    among children five and younger have jumped 7.2 per cent per year between 1999 and 2010."
  • "Researchers suspect a combination of factors could be to blame, including genetics, the environment and lower levels of Vitamin D."
