Cover and colleagues report recently in the journal Infection and Immunity that in the presence of H. pylori bacteria that produces the oncoprotein known as CagA, a salty diet increases the risk further. H. pylori is a type of bacteria that inhabits the human stomach in 50% of the population. Although this microorganism […]
