About this site

I spend much of my time answering questions on acid reflux and its complications on various on-line forums and facebook groups.

Ignorance is supposed to be bliss but it can be fatal. The principal aim of the charity I co-founded, Barrett's Wessex, is "to reduce the number of deaths to oesophageal cancer through raising awareness of its predominant pre-cancerous lesion, Barrett's Oesophagus." In addition, many misconceptions about reflux and its associated conditions and risks continually recur that I feel need addressing.

I decided it was time a book was written about it in layman's language sharing what I have learned through study and research over a number of years and guided by my own experiences (which may be read in appendix 4 ).

So this site is a version of a book which I want to be freely available. It is downloadable as a free resource with printed copies available at cost. If any donations are received or profits made, they will all go towards attempting to prevent deaths to oesophageal cancer through the work of Barrett's Wessex.

However, I am not a doctor and this book is not intended to provide medical advice.
