Acid reflux and heartburn are words used to express the same symptom - a burning sensation in your chest by your heart or right up the chest middle. This acid reflux symptom can also be experience much higher along the esophagus or throat. Over time, stomach acid can continue to dissolve esophagus tissue and this can lead to a bleeding ulcer with severe pain.

Another acid reflux symptom can be bad breath or consistent dry coughing.

Still, when esophageal tissue is eaten away, scar tissue can form which can narrow the esophagus making it difficult to swallow.

Obesity may be linked to a Brain Addiction to Overeating

Overeating may be more closely linked to the same responses that people become addicted to desire drugs. Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory looked at how the brain and the stomach work together with emotions to cause a person to overeat. The report was first presented in the October 17th issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and also online in PNAS Early Edition in the October 2nd issue.

The researchers found that the brain circuits that create the desire for an obese person to overeat is the same circuitry as a person that craves drugs. These circuits are responsible for soothing negative emotions which may be the reason many obese people overeat.

Pepcid May Benefit Heart Failure Patients – Same Chemical Released in Stomach Causes Heart Damage

Preliminary reports from Japan indicate that the heartburn medicine, Pepcid, may help prevent or treat heart failure. The same chemical reaction that allows stomach acid to cause heartburn and create ulcers also appears to damage and weaken diseased hearts.

By blocking the chemical reaction, Pepcid also slows the progression of chronic heart failure (CHF). Masafumi Kitakaze, MD, PhD, said “We performed the present prospective study with only 50 CHF patients. Now we need to conduct a large-scale trial to confirm the present findings.” Kitakaze is director of the Cardiovascular Division and vice president of the Research and Clinical Center at the National Cardiovascular Center.

Parallels between E. coli O157 and Flesh-Eating Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)

The Nation is currently experiencing two major health scares due to toxic bacteria. One derives from E. coli O157 contaminated lettuce and has caused severe diarrhea in several hundred individuals. The other epidemic is caused by toxic methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). It presents as a rapidly progressing skin abscess accompanied by significant tissue destruction or “flesh-eating.” Both epidemics could have been prevented through a more diligent and responsive Public Health Service. The time to act was when the mutant bacteria causing these respective illnesses were first identified in 1983 and 1992, respectively. At least in the case of toxic MRSA, it is not too late to mount a vigorous nationwide eradication program. Such a program will be facilitated by the availability of a simple environmental testing procedure for the presence of MRSA. The testing can also determine effectiveness of the MRSA eradication methods being employed. This article provides a brief historical account of the genesis of both types of bacteria, and outlines a community-based approach being promoted by the Institute of Progressive Medicine that is aimed at the eradication of MRSA. Information is also provided on the Staph Identification Plate for MRSA.
