More than 60 million Americans experience symptoms of acid reflux at least once per month and at least 25 million Americans suffer on a daily basis.
Most of us have experienced that uncomfortable, fiery sensation in our chest after we eat a big meal or foods that don’t quite agree with us – the dreaded heatburn! The good news is that despite its name it has nothing to do with the heart. The heartburn sensation you feel is, in medical terms, acid reflux.
A long term study found that the number of people who experience acid reflux at least once a week has gone up almost 50 percent in the last 10 years, with women appearing to be a bit more susceptible than men. This may say something about our current American diet!
