Long-term use of proton pump inhibitors like Nexium and Prilosec could lead to an increased risk of stomach cancer. That’s the news out of Gut medical journal, an academic publication that focuses on stomach health research. While stomach cancer is somewhat rare, those taking proton pump inhibitors may double their chances of being diagnosed with the deadly disease. More alarmingly, those taking the medications for more than three years increase their odds of developing stomach cancer by eightfold.
