These bacteria can be broadly divided into two categories, and while it may be tempting to simply think of them as ‘good and bad’ it’s more accurate to view them as those which are beneficial to our health and those which can be potentially detrimental to our health. Those bacteria which are beneficial to our health are commonly referred to as probiotics and they play a huge role in our health and wellbeing. The beneficial bacteria perform many useful functions including fermenting indigestible carbohydrates, producing B-group vitamins and vitamin K and helping to maintain or enhance optimal digestive function. However, when the balance of bacteria in the gut is upset the corresponding rise in the amount of potentially harmful bacteria can lead to digestive disturbances and other illnesses. The balance of bacteria can be negatively influenced by alcohol intake; consumption of processed, fast and fatty foods; stress; antibiotics; as well as medication such as the oral contraceptive pill. When this occurs, a quality supply of probiotic bacteria can help to restore a proper bacterial balance within the digestive system.

  April 2012 April 2012!!!!!!!!! Canadian Consumer Raw Milk Advocacy Group: Keep in mind as you read this that the majority of countries where raw milk is legal require testing for MAP infected cows before their milk is ever allowed for sale. In Canada, the group Cow Share Canada, requires it’s farmers to have each and every one of their cows tested for this before they are allowed to even come onto the farm. As of this writing, there seems to be no obligation for a farmer supplying milk to be pasteurized, to have his cows tested. Once all that milk is in a common bulk tank headed for the pasteurizing plant how do we know if it’s infected or not?  
  January 2012 January 2012 Pubmed: Vitamins A & D inhibit the growth of mycobacteria in radiometric culture.Proper vitamin D–vitamin A ratio Robert from California writes: Dr. Cannell replies, don't know if copyright laws allow the author to do that, but I will take the chance. The crux of the problem is that a form of vitamin A, retinoic acid, weakly activates the vitamin D response element on the gene and perhaps blocks vitamin D's more robust activation. In fact, the authors of a 1993 study state "there is a profound inhibition of vitamin D-activated...gene expression by retinoic acid."

    Center for Digestive Diseases: Anti-MAP. The bacterium, Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (MAP), is an infectious cause of Crohn’s Disease. Its causality has been proven by the standard Koch’s postulates which have been fulfilled by culturing the pathogen from patients with Crohn’s Disease, causing the disease to be reproduced in experimental animals, and then culturing back the bacterium from the experimental animals. Hence, a subset of patients with Crohn’s Disease – estimated to be around 50% - are suffering from this chronic inflammation caused by infection with MAP which is found in milk, water and foods generally.

MAP-Canada does not advocate a particular cause of Crohn's disease.  Our website is intended only to present evidence.  Our readers may draw their own conclusions.  We are not medical specialists and do not offer any treatment or nutritional advice.  Our mission is not to lay blame on any individual or industry, but rather to urge the Government of Canada to address the evidence presented on this site.

Mise au Point:
MAP-Canada ne recommande aucune théorie particulière sur la cause de la maladie de Crohn.L'intente de notre site Web est simplement de présenter certaineévidence mais vous pouvez arriver à vos propres conclusions.Nous ne pouvons donner de conseils de nature médicale ou alimentaire. Notre mission ne consiste aucunement à blâmer un individuou une industrie mais
plutôt à s'assurer que le Gouvernement du Canada aborde l'évidence que nous présenton
