Heartburn can be a precursor to the development of cancer of the larynx and throat

As a result of the researches of the American scientists came to the conclusion that heartburn may increase the risk of cancer of the larynx and throat in people who do not smoke and do not drink alcohol. More detailed results of a scientific experiment published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology biomarkers are & Prevention, which is supervised by the American Association for cancer research.

From the point of view of medicine, heartburn, or, as it is called, gastric acid disorder, manifested in the form of a burning sensation in the chest, accompanied by bloating, nausea, belching, sour or bitter taste in the mouth. Often symptoms of heartburn occur in humans after ingestion of large amounts of food when he is in the supine position.

According to lead author Scott Langevin from the American University brown, the earlier studies in the field of gastric reflux and cancer of the cervical region and the head region did not lead to the desired results. Scientists believe that in the past research works have considered those factors. In new research, scientists have tried to establish a link between frequent heartburn, which is caused by gastric reflux, and cancer of the larynx and throat.

In research took part 631 patients, of which 468 people suffered from throat cancer and 163 people from cancer of the larynx. Also created a control group of 1234 people who did not have any of the mentioned anabaena. The participants of the scientific experiment answered questions about their socioeconomic status, frequency of occurrence of heartburn, bad habits, and genetic predisposition to cancer. Being aware that cancer cervical region and the head region may also occur because of human papilloma virus 16, all participants had blood test taken to determine a strain of this virus.

The obtained results found that frequent heartburn increases the likelihood of developing cancer of the larynx and throat 78 percent non-Smoking and non-drinking people. However, the risk was decreased by 41 percent in the case, if patients taking antacids. But in any case, remedies and folk medicine did not reduce the risk of enclosurejune, while taking antacids helped to reduce this risk regardless of the experience of Smoking, alcoholism and human papilloma virus 16.
