The people in labcoats have found common genetics in a large group of Crohn’s & Colitis people of European descent. Which means there’s now partially a CAUSE which means it’ll be a hell of a lot easier to find TREATMENT and maybe, just maybe… a cure.
My IL23R gene is broken, and that’s alright by me today because that means that there’s a blueprinted reason why my body is doing what it’s doing, environmental triggers aside. Maybe my nieces and nephews and future children won’t have to worry about malnutrition, pain, death – they’ll be screened for this gene, and by then, there will be a gene-treatment that will be like a trip to the dentist to eradicate their disease.
Yeah. Today’s a really really good day.
