Why do I need to avoid black pepper?

Most of the Recipes in the book says no salt or black pepper. They put them on the list to avoid. I understand the Salt but why no Black Pepper. I season most everything with Black Pepper .

Dietitian's Answer

For some, black pepper has been shown to cause gastric discomfort. It has also been questioned as being harmful for prostate health, but more research is necessary. If pepper does not affect you in this way, then feel free to include it in your diet. In addition, piperine found in black pepper may interact with some medications.
