The stomach is an amazing organ. When you eat, its muscular walls stretch
to hold up to three pints of food.
Unfortunately, stress can literally
eat away at the body, says Dr. Oz. That's a leading cause of painful stomach
ulcers, shown here at left. The black spots and discolored craters are signs of
an overworked stomach. To protect your own stomach from these problems, try
relaxing, stress-busting exercises like meditation.
