Most bacteria are killed by strong acid in the stomach, but Helicobacter pylori thrives on it.
It settles in the mucous tissue of the stomach and usually leads to a lifelong inflammation of all parts of the stomach and causes 80-90% of all gastritis forms.
It is also the most common cause of stomach and duodenal ulcers worldwide and is most likely acquired by ingesting contaminated food and water or through person-to-person contact.
