Thanks to @drbriffa for linking to this mainstream press article about PPI's (proton pump inhibitors):
Heartburn pills taken by millions 'can increase risk of cancer and heart disease'
- Drugs also increase risk of infection and vitamin deficiencies
-Not only all that, but I hear they're bad for your health-
This has been a subject of great interest for me. If you take a PPI, please consider looking at a program to titrate off these meds. I did!
