So if we have protective mucus, how do we get ulcers?
The mucus production doesn't always give 100% protection and the acid strength can vary. Look up Helicobacter Pylori. I had recurring ulcers for years until these beasts were discovered by an Australian doctor (who infected and then cured himself to prove the point). I had a blood test to show that I indeed had this infection (and many people do), had a cocktail of antibiotics, then a "breath test" to verify the infection had been irradicated. Hey presto, never had an ulcer since.
I hate doctors that blame things on stress. Why don't they just say "I don't know what is wrong with you."
