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.
