Animal models have provided some information regarding the metaplastic cell origin. Early experiments in dogs by Bremner et al. suggested that, following denuding of the squamous epithelium, the columnar epithelium originates by proximal migration of gastric or junctional columnar epithelium [2]. Importantly, this study also showed that maximal columnarization of the esophagus requires mucosal damage, an impaired lower esophageal sphincter (LES), chronic reflux and low gastric clearance. In addition, at least in the dog, a minimum of 8 weeks is required for maximal changes following mucosal damage.

This mechanism was recently challanged in the Swedish case-control study, however, since the inverse association between H. pylori and EAC remained unaffected after adjustment for gastric atrophy [39]. Diet The knowledge of the influence of dietary factors is sparse and the available studies are susceptible to bias [41]. Confounding by dietary variables is a 21 source of error that is difficult to reliably adjust for. However, low intake of fruit and vegetables is an established dietary risk factor [42,43].
