Does heartburn cause Cancer?

Those of you who follow this blog and read my website know I don't concern myself only with plastic surgery.

For example, it has recently been learned that acid reflux, or "heartburn" can increase your risk of throat cancer.  

Researchers believe the acid reflux from your stomach causes the cells in your esophagus to change over time and pre-dispose to developing cancer.  

Taking over the counter medications for gastric reflux CAN decrease the risk of cancer by as much as 40%.  

I take omeprazole once a day and trust me, it does make a difference.
