Stomach Cancer Prevention
There are numerous types of stomach cancer.  Many articles discuss what they are, how they form, and how to treat them.  For a change, let’s talk about how to prevent them from happening in the first place.
To begin, you should know your risk factors.  Are you a male? Over fifty or sixty years of age? Does stomach cancer run in your family? Do you eat heavily processed foods and meats preserved with nitrates? Do you consume alcohol excessively, or chronically smoke, breathe in fine particulate matter in your occupation or have a history of ulcers? If so, these are risk factors that you should be aware of.  Some of them are very easy to change for the better.  Let’s begin.
Diet and lifestyle are important.  To begin with, cut down on alchohol consumption.  One drink per day for women and two for men is plenty.  If you work in an environment where you breathe in particulate matter, please, invest in a quality mask or respirator.  What about diet? Some studies have linked excessive salt intake to stomach cancer – however, the most harmful type of salt one can ingest in refined, iodized table salt.  Look instead for the much healthier, whole, unrefined sea salt (health food stores and quality grocers will carry it).  Do you eat meat? You may wish to lower your consumption.  Or, cook your meat less.  Choose grass fed beef whenever possible, or at least organic.  And by all means, avoid comercially processed meats.  At best, they contain artificial flavors and preservatives; at worst, they are full or nitrates/nitrites as a preserving agent, which have a strong link to stomach cancer.  Choose healthier meat.
Eat foods containing Vitamin C and Beta Carotene.  In fact, increasting consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables is always recommended.  Choose organic whenever possible.
If you suffer from gastric reflux disorder, or chronic H. Pylori bacterial infection, these issues should be addressed, as they are also risk factors.
