Advil! Yay! Boo!

Health News Article | Reuters.com: "Regular colonoscopy with follow-up treatment if needed can help prevent colon cancer in patients with ulcerative colitis, new research suggests. Likewise, the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin and ibuprofen, seems to reduce the risk as well."

Ha! Well, what they don't mention is that aspirin and ibuprofen rank as no-nos of high order for the tummy troubled. Hmmm maybe I should say "Bring on the Advil! Less pain! More Blood! No colon cancer!"

Hi,

I’m not sure if this is the proper venue to write this but I could not find contact info. We’d like to add your link to our websites: http://www.trueguts.com and http://www.truegutsforum.com.

It’s a great inspiration to see someone who is living life daily with Crohn’s and we would to show others that they have a support system.

We’d like like you to add our sites to your “Links” section. Help us spread the word that it’s possible to lead a happy and productive life with Crohn’s and colitis.

Please let us know if you’d be willing to exchange links with us, and send us the URL we should list on our site.

True Guts is the story of what happens when individuals turn a life altering disease into a personal springboard to get more from life. True Guts depicts individuals (including teenagers and young adults) with Crohn’s or colitis and how each of them found a way to use his/her disease to improve their lives. Also included is advice from a nationally recognized gastroenterologist and psychiatrist, each breaking down the steps that are necessary to take control of your life with a chronic disease such as Crohn’s or colitis.

Many Thanks and Regards,
