In fact, Helicobacter pylori is a kind of bacteria that likes strong acid environment. It is very special and rarely exists in nature. The stomach of mammals is the most suitable for its survival. Because of this, Helicobacter pylori is also the only microorganism that can survive in the stomach. In theory, if the bacteria multiply in the stomach. It may damage the gastric mucosa, even the muscle layer, resulting in gastric ulcer, repeated infection, and may induce gastric cancer, but the possibility is not high.

In the world, 50% of the people are Helicobacter pylori carriers, while in China, the proportion will be higher, reaching 56-67%. That is due to our Chinese eating habit of not dividing meals. But in the world, more than 70% of people infected with Helicobacter pylori have no symptoms.
