     "The following factors usually raise your risk for peptic ulcers:

    • Consumption of too much alcohol

    • Daily use of aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pharmaceuticals (NSAIDs). Taking aspirin or NSAIDs one time in a while is protected for most people but using it daily is really injurious for health.

    • Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco

    • Being very sick, for example being on a breathing machine

    • Having radiation treatments

    The most usual origin of peptic ulcers is contamination of the stomach by bacteria known as Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori). Many patients suffering from peptic ulcers have these microbes residing in their gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Yet, numerous persons who have these infected bacteria in their stomach do not cause an ulcer."
