If you put the above into a search engine, the paper should come up at the top of the search list.

Phew - just finished reading it - bloomin' complicated!

It's more of an awareness-raising paper than one that proposes a definite link between use of PPI's and heart problems in the general population.

They have found a definite link between their use and worsening heart problems in people with heart problems in the first place.

They think there might be a danger of PPI's having an adverse effect on the heart in general but this has not yet been proven. They do however insist that further research on the effect of PPI's on the hearts of the general population is warranted, especially since PPI's are available over the counter without prescription in some countries (and therefore without medical supervision of their use).

So, nothing to worry about unduly, but something to think about.

Love from Tigerlily xxxx
