Dr. Benzinger Blog - Heartburn

Fear techniques are one thing I abhor. A recent project published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology dispelled the idea that chronic heartburn increased the risk of cancer.

So, if you started on a medication for GERD (heartburn) because you were told the heartburn would increase your risk of cancer, you have been misled. Remember, most heartburn comes from a bad diet and/or a digestive system that has gone nuts. If you don’t find out why it went nuts, you may never get your digestion and nutrition back in order, and that would be dangerous.

God Bless,
