This might suggest that the first port of call for people with gastro-oesophageal reflux could be to try a Mediterranean diet before going on PPI medication, to avoid potential side effects. There are, however, some limitations to this research: Cohort studies can only show links and cannot prove definite cause and effect, and retrospective coh...
