In this experimental study of 65 ulcer patients and 25 healthy persons of this locality revealed an affinity of rice with ulceration. Experimental study conducted on 32 albino rats also confirmed the ulcerogenic property of rice. Arahara (red gram, Cojanus Ccaja) and to some extent wheat were found protective against peptic ulcer probably because of their high mucin output. Therefore, the study finds that the addition of wheat and pulses like Arahara in the diet of high prevalent area may bring decline in the incidence of peptic ulcer.
