    I'm reading this book now based on Lyle McDonald's recommendation, and it is outstanding. It's a great resource for learning about the physiological responses that stem from stress (susceptibility to illness, heart disease, etc). I highly recommend it to everyone.

    I think he means the finding of the bacterial link. That certainly isnt new and is probably older then the book. The title is just supposed to be witty.

    H.pylori is related to some types of ulcers; there are other causes though.

    You are taking the title far too literally.
