Back in conventional medical wisdom

Back in 1984, conventional medical wisdom was that ulcers were caused by stress, bad diet, smoking, alcohol and susceptible genes – and that no bacteria could survive in the stomach. Working with pathologist Robin Warren, I found a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori in all duodenal ulcer patients and in 77 per cent of those with gastric ulcers.
