How should I do to avoid transmission?

How do you catch Hp? From your mother when she kisses you? From brothers and sisters as a small child? From sexual partners as adults (kissing)? From dirty water (fecal contamination)? From animals? Who knows???

I would avoid public shallow wading pools.

When I was younger, I used to get "pink eye" (conjunctivitis) all the time after going in these things. Little kids would pee and poo in them.
I have no doubt that it is likely that many people ended up getting H. Pylori from these things. In my case, I lived in Toronto which used to have a lot of these very shallow wading pools. They did not seem to be as clean as the larger chlorinated swimming pools.

That would be worth investigating as I believe that these shallow wading pools could be a source of contamination.

How long the helicobacter can live for example in a apple, or in a toothbrush?

such experiment has not been done because H. pylori is sort of sensitive to oxygen. So, i wouldnt expect H. pylori to be cultured from anywhere other than the stomach.

Usually H. Pylori comes from contaminated water or foods. I have no idea where I got mine, as my doctor told me I probably had the infection for many years. I never had symptoms, this was diagnosed because I had a lot of heartburn while I was pregnant for my first baby and they 24hr-printer-cartridges.com had to do an endoscopy, and that's how they found out I had H. Pylori...

the exact transmission route has not been established. however, in general speaking, we got it via fecal-oral or oral-oral route.

We also believe that most of us got it while we were at young age. Many studies have shown that children as young as 2 years old were diagnosed with H. pylori infection.

It is normal to carry this bacteria without symptom. in fact, most of the infected individual does not even notice.

nevertheless, it is associated with stomach cancer, especially at old age. therefore, adult with symptoms are advised to have it eradicated.

I know what you mean. I have a husband and 2 small kids. I'm constantly washing my hands & surfaces, keeping everything separate etc..I'm so careful, I wouldn't want anyone to ever get this terrible illness. I wonder about intimacy with my husband. I'm afraid that he could get this from me. My kids want to taste something I'm eating or have a quick sip of my drink and I have to make sure they don't just in case. It does impact your life in everyday significant ways.
People read information online (not this site) and get the wrong idea about HP which doesn't help. Relatives don't want to eat at your house suddenly...could be a good thing I suppose haha.
I think it will be great to have a vaccine. Especially for those of us with a family history of gastric cancer.

I agree. then again, HP is just a inducing agent. if the individual is already a carrier of gastric cancer gene, is a matter of time for the cancer shows up, with or without HP.

I have been diagnosed with Helicobacter and am now being treated .
My concern is that my whole family might have it ,i have two little ones age 4.5 and 2.5 years and my partner.
Should they have the fecal tests for this infection and can the little ones be treated for it? Should my partner go for the test as she has had stomach pains and and loose stools.
