FDA Approves Remicade for Kids with Ulcerative Colitis

This is news just out about 6 PM PDT.

If you are like me and you think what this indicates then you have an idea of my concerns.  If you aren't like me here are a few of my concerns -
First of all I have to ask just why is a *kid* getting UC.  Then I ask, why do you need to select a drug that is genetically engineered and one that costs up to $25,000 a year and is administered by IV (intravenous).
Next think about the risks of the drug -
Risks include: SOURCE
Cases of leukopenia, neutropenia, thrombocytopenia, and pancytopenia (some fatal) have been reported with infliximab.[18] The FDA issued a warning to doctors appearing in the respective product labeling of infliximab instructing them to screen and monitor potential patients more carefully.[19] The FDA issued a warning to doctors that there is an increased risk of lymphoma and other cancers associated with the use of infliximab and other tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blockers in children and adolescents.[20]

Now just why are you prescribing this drug to a group that you -at the very same time - 
are you placing at risk for lymphoma and other cancers?
Seems to me that this is a very risky experiment for the benefit of Big PhRMA more than it is for a child, and their parents.

If you read the info it almost sounds like a vaccine, so maybe you should think about just why it might be a vaccine that causes the UC in the first place.  And now you want to impair a fragile immune system once again...
What about food allergy?
What about astragalus and marshmallow root?
What about flax seed oil?  (Something I have used very successfully for people with UC)
And of course there are quite a few other things you might do first, and if that is the case then look to Health Forensics to give you some sound suggestions.
Suggestions that do not increase your risk of lymphoma and other cancers.
