GORD? GERD!

In the United States, we call it gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

In the UK, they spell the esophagus as "oesophagus"...

so they call it GORD instead of GERD!

*rolls eyes* GORD just sounds weird.

I don't think gUrd sounds any better than gOrd... At least their version is pronounced the same way it's spelled. Stop bashing the British already :)
