    GERD Drugs (PPI) Cause Esophageal Cancer - The Very Disease They Should Prevent

    Forum users who follow my posts have probably noticed the number of threads I have posted exposing the fraud and ineffectiveness of the PPI drugs commonly prescribed for GERD. Another user who likely shares my passion against the PPI is @aguilaroja who will likely find the study sadly...

    PPI Drugs May Cause Gastric (stomach) Cancer

    Forum users who follow my posts have probably noticed the ongoing exchanges user @aguilaroja and I have had over the years in regards to the so-called PPI drugs used to treat GERD. My first negative impression about these drugs came almost 15 years ago when I was first getting started in the...

    C. Difficile Gut Infection Or Even IBD May Be Due To Low Vitamin D Or PPI Drugs

    As the study says, the direct cause is high intestinal levels of calcium but as the study also says these are usually due to poor calcium absorption. And unless a person has IBD (which is rare) the low vitamin D status or PPI drug (GERD) use stand out as the most likely causes, even more so...

    Acid Reflux (GERD) Drugs (PPI) Increase Risk Of Early Death

    I posted a few studies in the past in regard to the PPI class fo drugs causing kidney failure, stroke, steroid synthesis inhibition and even cancer. Now this study links these drugs to an increased risk of premature death. Keeping in mind the PPI class of drugs are probably the most widely...

    Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI) Increase All-cause Mortality And Heart Failure

    I posted a few studies before on the terrible side effects of PPI drugs. These drugs are perhaps the most prescribed class of drugs in the Western world for conditions like GERD, ulcers, or even to prepare for routine surgery. Recently, these drugs were approved even for use in newborns...

    PPI Drugs (anti GERD) Powerfully Inhibit Steroidogenesis

    I have always been suspicious of PPI drugs. There are many reasons for it, including the falsified clinical trial data to conceal increased risk of gastric cancer, the idiotic premise that gastric acid increases with age, the kidney failure side effects, and the calcium/magnesium depletion being...

    GERD (acid Reflux) Is Caused By Inflammation, Not Stomach Acid

    I have always been suspicious of the massive GERD drug market and the fact that despite them being the most prescribed drugs in the USA, the incidence of esophageal cancer (which they were designed to prevent) has been rising with scary speed. The raw data from the clinical trials on PPI drugs...

    Anti-acid (PPI) Drugs Commonly Used For GERD Lead To Kidney Failure

    I have long suspected that PPI drugs are very dangerous based on my observations of friends having bone problems and fractures typically seen in people 30-40 years older. The PPI drugs affect calcium and magnesium metabolism in ways that are just beginning to be elucidated and prescribing them...

    Anti-acid Drugs (ppi) May Cause Dementia

    The so-called Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI) are second generation anti-acid drugs that replaced the much safer first generation H2 antagonists like fomotidine, ranitidine, cimetidine, etc. The PPIs are really bad drugs that should have never been approved considering that they provably cause...

    Heartburn Drugs (ppi) Linked To Chronic Kidney Disease

    This study follows the previous once implicating PPI drugs like Nezium and Prevacid in bone fractures, pneumonia, and bacterial infections. Typically, chronic kidney disease is something only people with diabetes and very old people have to be concerned about, however as you can see taking a PPI...

    GERD Drugs (PPI) Linked To Heart Attacks

    Notably, the older drugs form the class of H2 antagonists were not tied to heart risks. Some of those antihistamines have very beneficial effects unrelated to GERD. The PPI drugs powerfully deplete magnesium and calcium, and raise prolactin. So, the link to heart attacks is not surprising...

    Vitamin B6 (P5P) Functions As A PPI

    If I am reading this right, P5P acts like a PPI. This would explain some of the protective effects of P5P on stress-induced gastric ulcers in animals and men. http://www.jbc.org/content/263/8/3652.long "...Pig gastric membrane vesicles enriched in (H++K+)-ATPase were covalently modified with...

    Benzodiazepines Are The New Wave Of Ppi Drugs

    Quite a few members of the forum have had experience with proton pump inhibitors (PPI) and have experienced first hand their horrible side effects. Here is a short sample of what people are experiencing while taking one of the well-known PPI drugs: http://www.askapatient.com/viewrating.a ...
