    Two Australian scientists won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine yesterday for discovering that a common bacterium -- not stress -- causes most ulcers.

    Good for them. That was indeed a watershed moment for science and worthy of the Nobel Prize. Austrailia must be real proud. Americans have dominated this prize and it's good to see good people around the world get it.

    Well of course!!! Doesn't surprise me at all that these two have been recognised for their brilliant work. In fact, Australia is a world leader in medical research.

    And.... my mate, (whose privacy I shall respect by not naming her), wrote a paper on H. Pylori, which was published in an American medical magazine! She was acclaimed for her excellent work.
    Oh, and guess what? She's a nurse!

    Most people don't really realize this and I guess I didn't either. I do know Austrailia is a leader in diabeties research, glycemic index, etc. Everything I've read about this lately has come from Austrailia.

    Kudos to you friend the nurse!
