FYI: we cost more.

dollarsignA recent study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine finds that employees with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis have medical expenses at a rate of three times a comparison sample without these conditions. I’m sure this bit of news is not a shock for anyone reading this blog, but perhaps it can be of use.

If you consider that some companies put on wellness seminars for smoking cessation and weight loss at least in part to help lower their insurance costs perhaps they would like to promote the SCD for the same reasons.

Or maybe I’m just a reckless optimist who wants everyone to know about the diet.

Either way, I wanted to share this info with you.
