Shape-shifting agent targets harmful bacteria in the stomach
(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) A new shape-shifting polymer can target and kill Helicobacter pylori bacteria in the stomach without killing helpful bacteria in the gut. Such a treatment could improve the digestive health of billions of people worldwide who contract H. pylori infections. The antimicrobial agent morphs into a bacterial hole-puncher in the stomach's acidic environment and reverts to an amorphous, inactive structure when it reaches the higher pH environment of the small intestine.

How Helicobacter pylori causes gastric cancer
(University of Erlangen-Nuremberg) Gastric cancer is one of the five most fatal types of cancer. According to the statistics of the World Health Organization about 750,000 patients die each year after developing the disease. The main cause is thought to be the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. Researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universit ä t Erlangen-N ü rnberg (FAU) have now identified two mechanisms through which this bacterium can cause gastric cancer. Their findings could result in the development of new therapeutic approaches. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

Acid reflux drugs linked to increased stomach cancer risk
Conclusion PPIs are commonly used medicines for acid reflux. This may seem like alarming news for the many people in the UK who take them, but it's important to remember that the overall risk of stomach cancer is still very low. This study has several limitations that mean we should be cautious about the results: This type of study can't prove PPIs caused the increased risk of cancer. The increased risk could be down to other factors. Researchers were unable to adjust their figures to take account of some relevant confounding factors, such as alcohol and tobacco use, as these weren't routinely recorded. Almost all the pati...

These 3 Superbugs Pose The Greatest Risk To Human Health
The World Health Organization is issuing a warning about a group of deadly bacteria: Recently, the WHO released its first-ever list of “priority pathogens,” a list of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that the organization says pose the greatest threat to human health. The list is divided into three categories: critical-, high- and medium-priority. Three pathogens made it into the critical-priority group. These bacteria are resistant to multiple antibiotics and pose a high risk to people in hospitals and nursing homes, the WHO says. Multidrug-resistant bacteria, sometimes called “superbugs,” are a ...

How To Prevent Cancer Naturally
Why is it that if you’re unfortunate enough to get cancer, your only option is to see an oncologist who will almost certainly recommend radiation, surgery or chemotherapy drugs? One reason is that it’s all they know. Conventional doctors are only educated to use the tools of modern medical technology. But there’s another reason that’s very concerning… Chemotherapy drugs are making oncologists very, very rich. You see, most doctors will just write you a prescription for a drug. But not oncologists. They buy these drugs at wholesale prices then sell them to cancer patients at marked-up prices....

Tracking Human Migration on a Micro Scale

Studies of his mummified remains have revealed much about his life during the Copper Age, between 3500 and 2300 BCE. Now we report not on Ötzi himself, but on his stomach bacteria, which tells us about his life and the history of human geography. Heliobacter pylori or H. pylori found in Ötzi's stomach infects two thirds of the world's population. This bacterium is thought to have become associated with humans at least...
