Acid Reflux (AR) has become a massive problem in the American culture, and around the world as well.
The change in our diet and our lifestyle habits have contributed to the rise in this problem. We tend to eat more fatty foods, eat late or on the go. Restaurants don’t help this fact, they create large portions and frequently ask if we want to ‘supersize’ our food.
We are highly stressed; a lot of people turn to food when they are stressed and in turn, their weight keeps creeping up. Heartburn or acid reflux is getting in the way of our day to day activities.
For some people it can be crippling, leaving them unable to go to work or spend time with their family. Acid reflux should not be taken lightly. There are consequences you may suffer if left untreated.
When someone suffers from constant heartburn, the consequence is damage to your esophagus; this encompasses ulcerations, strictures, and possible bleeding.
If left untreated, this can lead to esophageal cancer. One of the main reasons for this is because the American diet has influenced the healthcare in today’s society.
