I was wondering, does fasting increase or decrease the acidity of the stomach?
Because my understanding was that fasting is good for the stomach, because there is no food, and thus no extra acid is produced.
So for example people with astroesophageal reflux disease will feel better when they are fasting as long as they don't full up their stomachs and sleep and don't eat irritating food ...etc. But I read on the Internet that fasting for long hours increased the acidity of the stomach!
Which is right?
