“Going into the campaign I am confident about my victory. People of Goa have seen what Prime Minister Narendra Modi can deliver,” Naik said.

One of the senior-most Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in the state, Naik’s candidature was initially objected to by party workers considered close to late leader Manohar Parrikar, who had complained to the state BJP brass that Naik was ineffective and inaccesible.

The BJP’s candidate for the South Goa seat and outgoing MP Narendra Sawaikar has also filed his nomination papers.

Goa will have simultaneous elections for both the two Lok Sabha seats as well as for three Assembly by-polls on April 23.

Coffee may help reduce the risk of certain digestive disorders

Coffee consumption may have on the process of digestion, including supporting gut microflora and promoting gut motility.

“Data indicates benefits against common digestive complaints such as constipation, as well as a potential reduction in the risk of more serious conditions like chronic liver diseases,” said study author Carlo La Vecchia from the University of Milan in Italy.

Gallstone disease is a common digestive disorder, caused by the accumulation of gallstones in the gallbladder or bile duct, which affects approximately 10-15 per cent of the adult population.

While the mechanism by which coffee may protect against gallstone disease is not yet known, it has been observed that the risk for the condition declines with increasing daily consumption of coffee, the researchers said.

Caffeine is thought to play a role in these associations, as the same effect is not observed with decaffeinated coffee.

A common question among consumers and focus area for research is whether coffee is associated with heartburn or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD).

While a small number of studies have suggested an association between coffee drinking and GORD, the majority of studies reviewed suggest that coffee is not a major trigger of these conditions.

Recent studies suggest that populations of the beneficial gut bacteria Bifidobacterium spp, increase after drinking coffee.

The findings showed the dietary fibre and polyphenols found in coffee, support the healthy growth of microflora populations.
