Acid reflux? Try going vegetarian
|A new study looked at close to 200 patients at one medical center who had been diagnosed with laryngopharyngeal reflux. It’s a condition where stomach acids habitually back up into the throat, and it’s distinct from the much better-known gastroesophageal reflux disease—or what most people call heartburn. People with laryngopharyngeal reflux usually don’t have heartburn, explained Dr. Craig Zalvan, the lead researcher on the new study.
