How you eat, not just what you eat, might be behind heartburn

"Heartburn is a burning discomfort from the chest area up to the throat. It can happen when stomach acid refluxes, or flows up, through a valve called the lower esophageal sphincter and irritates the esophagus. Certain foods can trigger heartburn, and identifying and limiting your triggers may help. You may have a little more food freedom than you think." -- WebMD
