Quotes

  • The medical argument for animal testing doesn’t stand up. Even if it did, I don’t think we should kill other species. We think we’re so much better; I’m not sure we are. I tell people, “We’ve beaten into submission every animal on the face of the Earth, so we are the clear winners of whatever battle is going on between the species. Couldn’t we be generous? I really do think it’s time to get nice. No need to keep beating up on them. I think we’ve got to show that we’re kind.
    -Paul McCartney

Heartburn is technically known as gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD.

"When you lie on your back, a lot of the acid material in your stomach goes into the swallowing tube called the esophagus," Dr Oz. explains. "Here it actually burns that lining, that's what causes the irritation. It's literally a sunburn of the inside of your esophagus."
