I've been wondering if those of us who read the medical literature should start a separate thread where we can post medical literature news? It would help us keep tab on things we have discussed or want to share, I thought.

As a starter, I've read today that olive oil is protective against upper GI cancers

http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/ben/cpd/2011/00000017/00000008/art00006

It's protective against other cancers too. I've read elsewhere that it needs to be raw (not cooked that is) extra virgin olive oil, so use as salad dressing or put on a baked potato etc.

MMM,
 
A good idea if you would like to start a thread .  I do feel we need to stay on the topic of  GERD - Heartburn  specific links. 

This forum is  a resource for those living with or affected by GERD - Heartburn.

If you have any questions re this idea, please do feel free to email me.  Again thank you for bringing this topic up.

You are appreciated.

Kindly,

Kitt

I've stated over and over that the sad thing about GERD is that it seldom if ever occurs in a vacuum - health and otherwise.

I've had GERD for so long until my recent NF that it has impacted every aspect of my life and just fixing the GERD did not fix all of me.

I'm interested in the additional reading as long as it pertains to GERD treatment and recovery.

Just my opinion.

Sorry for confusing message - I did mean in relation to GERD issues. One of the most frequently discussed issues, however, is the progression (or fear of) from Barretts to adenocarcinoma. The above research shows us something we can all do to reduce our risk of upper GI cancer - hadn't planned to go any further "off piste" than that though!

Just thought it may be useful to have a central place to put latest info relating to treatment, surgery, risk factors relating to having GERD or having/not having ppis, surgery etc - but only info that has come from the scientific literature (not the daily press). The thread may get too long from time to time and need a fresh start, depending on how it goes.......?

Some of us are used to reading the articles and papers and have already been sounding out thoughts and theories in one off threads. We would need some guidelines, like: -
a) no deliberate scaremongering!!
b) only proper studies referred to
c) only relating to GERD
d) only very recent articles (say within past 6 months.....?)

Let me know what you think Kitt - don't want to make any more work for anyone!!

Mudmagnetmum - I think it is a great idea. I occasionally link to stuff like that too.

I eat such a restricted diet that I almost eat Hummus daily. I make it a special way and of course it includes a lot of olive oil. I've always told my wife not to worry, that its a healthy oil. Now I can tell her hey, it protects against one of my biggest fears :) thanks for the link.

I think Ive read black raspberries, strawberries, brocolli and green tea also help with esophageal cancer, so I have incorporated all of them significantly into my diet.

This study is on rats (aren't they lucky) not people. However, it shows benefit to the gastric mucosa of taking fish oil, saying offensive factors (acid and pepsin) were reduced and protective factors (mucin and longer lasting mucosal cells) are increased.

This is something I was about to try in any case, so I'll report back if there's any change.

NB if you are considering taking fish oils you should look for a high quality product, refined so that you are not also getting a ton of vitamin A or mercury!

Looks like a pharamceutical company has taken up the zinc salts research. They are preparing a new therapy based on the successful zinc salts trial (small though it was).

Do you think if we all write to them, they'd speed it up a bit?!

Just spotted this new paper on LPR:

http://www.voiceinstituteofnewyork.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Low-Acid-Diet.pdf

It discusses the benefits of a low acid (I.e. A diet with a low content of acidic food) on LPR.
 
Actually it's an interesting read generally on the subject of GERD as well as LPR. The author is pointing out that the "acidification" of food and drink (to keep it germ free) coincides with the surge in the development of acid reflux smhair

Hey all, can we all post links here?

This is a fabulous link that gives us some basic GERD recipes for beginners. When I first started this I felt like I couldn't eat anything besides white bread, so here we go. If I'm in the wrong place, let me know I'll remove my post.

Good luck, all!
