H pylori and Stroke – could H pylori infection lead to a stroke?...

On first inspection, it seems unlikely that a stomach infection could increase the risk of having a stroke, and so people – including the medical system – don’t associate H pylori and stroke.

Don’t forget that you can get all my information on H pylori and cardiovascular diseases in one place, in my e-book,...

H Pylori Diseases – the “Dark Side” of Helicobacter pylori...

H Pylori Diseases – The Dark Side of H Pylori Erm, this article isn’t really full of the joys of spring.

BUT, when you learn this information you realise how important it...
