Crohn's disease is a form of inflammatory bowel disease characterized by inflammation in the digestive tract that can result in abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, and malnutrition.

In this study, researchers found that feeding the artificial sweetener sucralose to mice with a Crohn's disease-like condition resulted in increased bacterial penetration into the intestinal lining.
