Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Should you adopt a specific diet if you have an ulcer?
A: A few decades ago, the prescribed response to ulcers was a bland diet—one low in spices and high in dairy products, which were believed to coat the stomach. However, eventually it was discovered that spicy foods are innocent and that milk itself is somewhat ulcer forming.
