Study: Dangerous Acid Blockers Shut Down More than Stomach AcidWhat you don’t know about this class of drugs can ruin your health. It can even kill you. We’ve written before about the dangers of acid blockers and how, in many cases, they are likely exacerbating stomach pain while causing serious disease. New research gives us even more reason to stay away from these dangerous drugs. Did you know that acid blockers don’t merely shut off acid pumps in the stomach? Recent research warns that they also shut off production of acid inside the mitochondria every cell in our bodies! Yikes. The health of our mitochondria determine our overall health. Yet here we are blithely interfering with their cellular energy production and detoxification processes.
