Ask Dr. Oz Season 3: Post Op #20

Posted:

Audience member Candice asks Dr. Oz if there is something that can be done to avoid contracting H pylori (Helicobacter pylori: a microbial bacterium that colonizes the stomach and has been linked to chronic gastritis, stomach cancer, and duodenal ulcers, but it has also been postulated that it may play a role in natural stomach ecology).

Dr. Oz answers that about 20 years ago, H pylori’s existence wasn’t known, but that it is now a known cause of stomach infections that can be treated.

Dr. Oz explains there are steps that can be taken to keep the stomach generally healthy, and the cancerous effects of H pylori at bay. Dr. Oz has noted before that green tea, broccoli sprouts, garlic, probiotics, and flavonoids help prevent serious H pylori issues. One might get ulcers from the already present H pylori bacterium in their stomach, but the potential of contracting cancer resulting from H pylori is most definitely decreased if they consume these products.

    Subway bedbug infestations on the rise

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
