Spicy food good 4 u: Turns out spicy foods are good for you as long as your can stomach it, no pun intended. Apparently, spicy foods are loaded with lots of antioxidants. Of course, what's spicy for one person might be bland for someone else. Spicy foods & acidic foods can irritate your stomach if you have gastritis, esophagitis or ulcer. But if you like spicy foods & don't have any pain or heartburn, then go enjoy.

Spicy foods: Can irritate sensitive stomachs. It does not bother the stomachs of others.
