An autoimmune disease is where the immune system attacks its own tissues resulting in some form of inflammation. ItĂ˘Â€Â™s virtually accepted that CrohnĂ˘Â€Â™s is an autoimmune disease caused by an overly aggressive immune response.
Once you accept an assumption as fact, however credible, you donĂ˘Â€Â™t tend to dig any deeper. While researching CrohnĂ˘Â€Â™s, I read time and time again that CrohnĂ˘Â€Â™s is an autoimmune disease caused by an aggressive immune response. Logically, youĂ˘Â€Â™d need an aggressive immune response to explain away the significant inflammation, strictures, ulcers, fistulas, etc, found in CrohnĂ˘Â€Â™s disease. But, all the available research suggests CrohnĂ˘Â€Â™s sufferers have a WEAK immune response!
