The debate on whether the calories that
people with or without diabetes drink help to make us feel full isn't
over. But the evidence that they don't is mounting. My preliminary article, " Drinking Calories," appeared here last September. At that time I reported on the finding of obesity researcher Barbara Rolls.
“Calorie intake increased significantly when people drank a beverage
containing 150 calories with lunch, compared to when they had a
calorie-free beverage.” Now
researchers are learning even more about how the calories that we drink
don't promote satiety. Even the country's top nutrition expert, Walter
C. Willett, M.D., of the Harvard School of Public Health, is on board.
MEDLINE credits him for more than 1,000 professional articles. But his
work that really impressed me was his non-technical book, Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy (Simon & Schuster, 2001). "There does seem

Heartburn, also known as gastric reflux or indigestion, happens after you eat and food is in your stomach. In the stomach, food is broken down by acids. Usually these acids stay in your stomach because a valve blocks the acids from going up the esophagus. Sometimes this valve doesn't work properly because the muscle weakens. When this happens, gastric acids can travel up the esophagus and cause a burning sensation -- this is heartburn. When these acids travel up into the mouth and then down into the lungs, they can cause gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Symptoms of heartburn and GERD include:
irritating burning sensation in the chest or throat
middle back pain
bitter, acidic taste in the mouth
an increase in the burning sensation while lying down
Breast cancer treatments that can cause heartburn and GERD are:
Tykerb (chemical name: lapatinib), a targeted therapy
Bisphosphonates, medicines that are used to protect bones during breast cancer treat...
