The most fatal cancers are lung and liver, but the third most frequent, and least discussed is stomach cancer. And, once diagnosed, the survival rate is only five years.
What can we do about it? The best answer is control those elements that you can to avoid it. Here they are:
• Avoid processed meats, i.e., cured, smoked, and those with additives like nitrites.
• Don’t gain weight and lose excess weight you currently carry;
• Reduce your alcohol consumption. Three drinks per day increases your risk.
Early diagnosis without symptoms is difficult. It is best to see your primary care doctor for routine exams and a review of your family history in order to discover early signs.
The good news, no evidence was found that eating grilled, broiled or BBQ meat or fish increases your risk. As usual, the Internet gives you a wealth of information. http://www.nostomachforcancer.org
