This blog was originally published in Travis McClain's Journal - Patient on We Are Crohns on 19 December 2008.
One of the nice features of Google is being able to sign up for instant alerts to any and all news articles that contain key words. I, for instance, have signed up to be informed the moment anything is published containing the word "Crohn's." Frequently, I get local news articles about a citizen functioning with the diagnosis (or occasionally dying from it). I am also alerted any time a new study is published, which also happens with a higher instance of regularity than I would have suspected. Today is no exception, and I thought this important enough to share.
