I just got the results of my Helicobacter pylori test. It’s negative. Stefano asked: "is that good or bad?" It’s good, it’s good. It means that I don’t have this bothersome bacterium in my stomach. Well, to tell the truth, I was almost positive the test would be negative, because curcumin kills H. pylori. I should have had this test done two years ago, in the pre-curcumin era. But back then I didn’t know of the possible connection to MGUS. At any rate, now I can add another item to my "thankful that something didn’t happen" list: H. pylori.
