Ep 28 H. pylori: Don't try this at home

Description

This week's episode comes with a warning: don't attempt this at home. While self-experimentation has led to many a scientific breakthrough, we're definitely not advocating it. But it happened to work out for the best for Barry Marshall and Robin Warren, even earning them a Nobel prize. That’s right folks, today we’re talking about none other than Helicobacter pylori, the curvy little bacterium identified only a few decades ago to be a causative agent of peptic ulcer disease, a major risk factor in the development of gastric cancer, and a fierce warrior who can survive the harshest of environments: your stomach.

I’ve had this! It was not a good time. I loved listening to the episode and learning all about this disease I’ve already had! I did take the two weeks of anabiotic’s and have been symptom-free for about five years
