More Digestive News 

A new study indicates that low fat, high carb dieters keep more weight off than do low-carb, high-fat dieters. The funniest line in the report comes from the Atkins Foundation rep, who notes that "the study considered 90 grams to be low-carb, while Atkins recommends 60 grams for weight loss and 60 to 120 for weight maintenance." Because 90 grams is not at all in the 60-120 gram range. All the subjects lost weight, the question was how well it stayed lost.

NIAID has completed a small trial of a new treatment for Crohn's Disease, an uncomfortable and often debilitating autoimmune condition affecting the bowels, with promising results. Good news, since this could lead to treatments of other autoimmune diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis and endometriosis.
