How Is Helicobacter Pylori Transmitted?

- Aug 17, 2020-

Studies have confirmed that Helicobacter pylori is extremely contagious. It enters the human body through infected food and water, settles down and reproduces on the gastric mucosa, and gradually causes gastric mucosal damage.

Helicobacter pylori is very contagious, and it is generally transmitted through 4 ways-

One is tableware and shared meals. If there is no special chopsticks, Helicobacter pylori is easily transmitted through the saliva on the chopsticks;

The second is the bed. Helicobacter pylori can contaminate bedding and pillows through saliva and breath, causing infection among family members;

Third, pets such as cats and dogs are easy to carry Helicobacter pylori, so close contact with pets should be avoided;

Fourth, eat raw foods that are susceptible to Helicobacter pylori infection, steaks are half-ripe, and hot pot meat is not cooked. These are hidden dangers of Helicobacter pylori infection.
