Helicobacter pylori may be the most successful pathogen in human history. While not as deadly as the bacteria that cause tuberculosis, cholera, and the plague, it infects more people than all the others combined. H. pylori, which migrated out of Africa along with our ancestors, has been intertwined with our species for at least two hundred thousand years. Although the bacterium occupies half the stomachs on earth, its role in our lives was never clear. Then, in 1982, to the astonishment of the medical world, two scientists, Barry Marshall and J. Robin Warren, discovered that H. pylori is the principal cause of gastritis and peptic ulcers; it has since been associated with an increased risk of stomach cancer as well.

“Dr Caudle on Depression” on YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVEcHktQa-M&feature=youtube_gdata_player

You roll over, get out of bed, go in the bathroom & wash your face with hot water … You look in your refrigerator, but the eggs, bacon, fruit & raisin bagels don’t look appetizing … You don’t feel like drinking juice or coffee so you grab a bottle of water … You go to your closet, but you can’t decide which out fit wear … You pick up your cell phone, call in sick, turn on the TV, then lay back down on your pillow top mattress … It sure is tough being depressed in America
