    Definition of Crohn's Disease for those of you who have no earthly idea what that disease is.

    Thomas, I cannot speak for the companies, BUT I could see no reason why they wouldn't let you work for them with Crohn's Disease as it shouldn't interfere. The main diseases they worry about are Diabetes, Heart Disease, and the like. Anybody know any different?
