The obvious take home is to shift your diet away from milk fat in particular to start with and see if it does any good. This requires a lot of care in terms of processed food but we knew that anyway. It is just not obvious which processed food contains milk fat and it has never been much of an issue.

The researchers worked with a mouse model that has many of the characteristics of human IBD. Genetically deleting a molecule, interleukin 10, which acts as a brake on the immune system’s response to intestinal bacteria, caused about 20 percent of mice to develop colitis when fed a low-fat diet or a diet high in polyunsaturated fats. But when exposed to a diet high in saturated milk fats, the rate of disease development within six months tripled, increasing to more than 60 percent. In addition, the onset, severity and extent of colitis were much greater than that observed in mice fed low-fat diets.
