Is Crohn's Genetic?

  My partner has Crohn's.  He and I have begun to contemplate having a child, but I'm curious to know whether or not our child would be at significant risk of developing the disease.  There is no evidence of Crohn's in my family.  Thank you.
Dear Beata,
Although genetic influences clearly play a role in Crohn
