Food can be not only useful to our bodies, but can cause harm sometimes. Of course, we do not mean weight gain, since that is a particular kind of damage your body can suffer from too. What we have in mind is acid reflux.

The thing is, the food you eat influences the amount of acid your stomach produces, and if there is too much of it in your stomach, it fires back and leads to acid reflux, which is far from being nice. That is why we thought it may be a nice idea to share a list of foods you should avoid if you do not want to suffer from acid reflux.
