The idea for Crohnscanada was inspired by the commitment and dedication of its sister organization PARA (Paratuberculosis Awareness and Research Association Inc.) an American based organization. This grassroots movement has grown from the dedication and sheer willpower of two women with children with Crohn's disease, to address the alarming rise of the bacterium "Mycobacterium avium Paratuberculosis" in the environment and the growing evidence linking this bacterium to Crohn's disease.

Crohnscanada was founded to address the same issue, but on Canadian soil. One hundred thousand or more people in Canada, and over a million in the United States of toddler's, adolescents, teens, and adults are being cut down in their prime of life by this horrible disease. It is a disease that is rising in tragic proportions. Renowned Researchers all over the world have been with working with little or no funding to try and find a solution for this devastating illness. They have finally found pursuasive evidence after decades have passed without any breakthroughs.


Why is the Canadian Government dragging their feet,

why are they not testing our milk at the retail level. ??????????????




All we ask the Canadian Government is to test our milk at the retail level for Mycobacterium avium Paratuberculosis, to either eliminate this possible threat and put the minds of Canadians at rest or to provide the necessary funding to eradicate this bacterium from our food.

Considering that:

Canada is a net exporter of beef with a 1997 trade balance of 112,335 metric tonnes In the face of major flows into and out of the country, this relationship is maintained only via a continued access to international markets, especially the United States.

Within the dairy sector, export volumes are in the order of $128 million for live cattle, semen and embryos and 144,000 metric tonnes of dairy products The United States purchases 85% of Canada's beef exports and more than 99% of its live cattle exports.
