Diversity in our gut bacteria is important in essential for combating disease, and it turns out that taking the typical, over-the-counter acid blocking drugs that everyone seems to think they need dramatically changes the gut bacteria. This sets the stage for a potentially life-threatening illness due to bacterial overgrow.
This video focuses on the potential for acid-blocking drugs, called PPIs, to cause an infection known as C. difficile. It’s really troubling when you recognize that this infection is associated with more than 30,000 deaths in America every year! Take a look at the latest science, and enjoy today’s video.
