Heartburn / reflux. You know, I’ve had this discussion w/ pts many of times. Those w/ GERD have increased risk of esophageal cancer, so they are put on acid blockers to save them. The problem is that they don’t lower your risk! We THINK they do, but they don’t. What they do do is wreak havoc on your digestive system, immune system & increase risk of certain cancers. If you have reflux, you need to lower stress levels, support digestion instead of destroy it, avoid caffeine, nicotine, nightshades, alcohol.
