Heartburn May Be The Body's Way of Saying You Are Eating Too Much Of The Wrong Food
Taking antacid medicines may promote overeating, and make eating processed foods more socially acceptable
Monday, April 12, 2021 - The human body's ability to function is by any measure an incredible miracle with built-in systems that are designed to guide our behavior to protect it. Overall the body produces pain to alert us that something is wrong or at least worthy of our attention. Heartburn and acid reflux pain may be a symptom of a poor diet that could lead to developing a disease if not corrected. The long-term detrimental effects of eating processed meats and overeating can be masked by taking an antacid medicine. Antacid medicines like Zantac are now being accused of causing cancer of the stomach, bladder, colon, and other parts of the gastrointestinal tract. Former Zantac users have filed lawsuits against Sanofi and GalaxoSmithKline, the makers of Zantac, for failing to warn them of the drug's cancer risks. In addition to directly causing cancer, Zantac could also, however, have indirectly caused people to eat so poorly they developed heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases stemming from becoming obese. Zantac Cancer Lawyers are currently interviewing potential plaintiffs and filing claims for reimbursement of monetary damages.
It has recently been uncovered that taking Zantac, the world's best-selling heartburn and acid reflux medicine, may not only lead to developing cancer but also could be partly responsible for the obesity epidemic that has plagued America for the past three decades. The meteoric growth in the number of users of Zantac, up to 15 million per day as of the time that the drug was recalled last year by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is parallel to the number of people that have overeaten and under-exercised to the extent that they are grossly overweight. Being overweight puts one's life at risk of developing many different types of serious diseases. Wikipedia tells readers about the obesity epidemic. "Over 70 million adults in the U.S. are obese (35 million men and 35 million women). 99-million are overweight (45 million women and 54 million men). NHANES 2016 statistics showed that about 39.6% of American adults were obese. Men had an age-adjusted rate of 37.9%, and Women had an age-adjusted rate of 41.1%." Zantac's contribution to obesity pertains to the antacid drug enabling users to continue to eat excessive quantities of high-fat and spicy foods. There is no doubt that antacid medicines promote overeating and eating the wrong foods.
People must change their mindset when it comes to taking medicine and address changes to their diet when heartburn pain begins. Nutritionists claim that an individual can stop heartburn pain by making a few simple changes like discontinuing eating meat and dairy products and replacing them with a plant-based diet. Eliminating fried foods like fried chicken, hamburgers, and french fries may also prevent heartburn. Eliminating drinking coffee may also provide immediate heartburn relief. You may have a more serious medical problem if heartburn pain persists after making dietary changes and should see a doctor immediately.
