Pick Your Poison for Gastric Reflux

Research from Stanford shows that those who take long-term Protein Pump Inhibitors (Prilosec, Protonics, Nexium) to control G.E.R.D. have an increased risk of heart disease.  A reasonable substitute might be an H2 Blocker (Tagamet, Zantac, Pepcid), which do not carry that risk.  Better yet, get tested for food allergies and digestive factors such as digestive enzymes and in some cases HCl to get to the cause.
