Gastric cancer (cancer of the stomach) is most often found in people over age 55. Statistics have shown that men are more susceptible than women, and black more than whites. In India, approximately 24,000 new cases of gastric cancer are diagnosed each year and about 700,000 new cases diagnosed worldwide.
Medindia’s support group hosts additional information on this form of cancer, its prognosis and treatment options.
We seem to be consuming a lot of carcinogens which are actually cancer producing substances right from the tinned food that we use to dyes that are present in the food stuffs. Is it any wonder that cancer stomach is a very serious problem today. Even fresh fruits and vegetables which contain antioxidants that are recommended are ripened by substances that are carcinogenic and gastric irritants.
