Peppery Nigerian food(Bolé)

PEPPER does not cause ULCERS. 

Contrary to some opinions that pepper causes ulcer, consumption of pepperish foods does not lead to development of ulcers.
As a matter of fact, the 'capsaicin' present in pepper can even help reduce gastric acid secretion and improve mucousal secretion, which is good in preventing ulcers(I didn't say you should go ahead and eat one bucket of pepper every day though).

But you must NOTE!
Consumption of peppery foods may irritate your ULCER when you ALREADY have an ULCER.

They don't cause ulcers, but they can irritate an ulcer that is already present.
