Pill Poison: Crohn's and Colitis Drugs

The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) and their pharmaceutical sponsors are not interested in curing their patients. A cured patient is one who will no longer purchase medicine. The CCFA says that though there is no cure, “a number of different medications have proven effective in helping to control the disease.” Instead of addressing the cause directly, the CCFA and their pharmaceutical sponsors prefer ineffectual band-aid remedies that only minimally manage the pain and discomfort. In addition, many of the medications promoted by the CCFA are extremely harmful and can lead to the development of secondary health conditions.
