GERD is caused by a weak esophageal sphincter muscle.
An estimated 1 in 5 U.S. adults suffer from GERD.
The incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma, a type of cancer linked to GERD, increased over 600% between 1973 and 2006.
Approximately 40% of GERD sufferers continue to have symptoms while taking medications for GERD.
