Why we get ulcers?
The stomach is lined with cells which secrete acids and pepsins, this help the food to digest properly. During the normal time acids will play their role only in the time of food. These acid making cells are also triggered by a large vagus nerve linking brain to the stomach. When we are hungry, see or smell food, or become anxious or eager impulses are transmitted by this nerve to stimulate stomach secretions. In the absence of food, these excess digestive juices may work on the stomach or duodenum lining itself, forming a sore called peptic ulcer.
Techniques recommended by experts to lower your ulcer risk
Alcohol, smoking and various types of pan masala are strong stimulus for acid secretion.
