See below: Acid reflux is not a known cause of throat cancer. To learn about symptoms of throat cancer, please consult this site: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/oral-and-throat-cancer/basics/symptoms/CON-20042850 For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
