In brief: Causes of GERD

GERD has much to do with the unhealthy dietary habits of city dwellers: heavy consumption of coffee and fatty foods, central obesity, habit of late night snacks and irregular eating schedule, etc.
These factors cause relaxation of the oesophageal sphincter, leading to GERD. Besides, smokers and drinkers are vulnerable to the condition as well.
