Heartburn is common but avoidable

Dr Mallika Marshall notes that up to 20% of adults suffer heartburn at least once each month. Symptoms of heartburn include: feeling of warmth or burning, sour taste, burping, nausea and bloating. Heartburn can be avoided by: abstaining from certain foods, alcohol, aspirin, avoiding lying down or exercising soon after eating, stopping smoking and losing weight.
