Maybe this isn't the exactly correct place for this, but the story is probably important to someone here, and it's somewhat , (but not completely) related to this thread.
Drugs used to treat heartburn, ulcers and reflux have been linked to premature death, and everything from fractures to dementia. I guess mother nature knew what she was doing when she created stomach acid? Or is it somehow a problem with side effects of the meds themselves? This study looked at proton pump inhibitors which "are typically used at higher doses and for longer durations,"
"The study "did not look at OTC products, rather, it only involved prescript
ion." I reckon we'lll have to wait and see if some researcher decides to do a good study of the non-prescript
ion meds that affect stomach acid.
I thought most of you might prefer a CNN link about
it. "They say that limited use, only when medically necessary is best." www.cnn.com/2017/07/03/health/proton-pump-inhibitors-early-death-risk-study/index.html
