Antacid therapies – particularly the proton-pump inhibitors – increase your risk of various gastrointestinal cancers and can lead to serious nutrient deficiencies and intestinal infections, among several other unpleasant side effects.

Special guest, Dr. Michael Murray, joins Dr. Mike to shed some light on this topic.
