I am trying to start a class action lawsuit to make the antiacid companies include a message about h.pylori and how it is now known to give stomach cancer. This is a huge cover up. How many people out their went so many years with symptoms of heartburn, stomach pain and thought it was just normal to have stomach distress because of spicy foods, or stress or your job, or your boss? These advertisements have cost many people their lives because it is now known that h.pylori is a major cause of stomach cancer. They should be forced to re-educate the public about how serious this can be and not to self-medicate yourself. I am interested in getting peoples stories about how they found out they had stomach cancer and how long it took before they got a biosopy of their stomach. I am thinking of also a consumer handbook about stomach cancer to alert the public about this cancer.
