8. Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton suffered from acid reflux when he was in the White House. His occasional hoarseness may have been attributed to his having GERD. When he experienced chest pain that ultimately led to a quadruple bypass, he first wrote off the symptoms to his acid reflux and lack of exercise. Clinton has since adopted a strict vegan diet for better heart health and avoids many of the foods that can lead to GERD. Foods that can cause heartburn and ingestion are chocolate, greasy or spicy foods, tomato sauces, and alcohol.
