Thanks SK for the link.  I did notice the article is 36 years old - published in 1975.  That doesn't mean the info isn't good but I am wondering if there is anything newer you might be able to locate re the same topic ?
Thanks for your help.

WOW! What a great article, it really opened my eyes. My husband is very interested in the physiology of the pain I have and I haven't been able to explain it to him before... wow. Thanks so much for posting!

Thanks for posting. I had a TIF and my reflux is much better. Now fats, coffee, and chocolate do not bother me buy tomato based foods still bother me. The article may explain why.

Thanks for the interesting article, which does confirm many people's experiences with the "usual suspects"! Their comment at the beginning should carry more weight though - that all the trigger foods have much more of an effect in people whose resting LES pressure is lower than normal.
