  1. Attributable risks for stomach cancer in Northern Italy.

    Article - En anglais

    The proportions of gastric cancer cases attributable (or attributable risks, AR) to consumption of traditional foods (i.e., pasta, rice and maize), low intake of beta-carotene and vitamin C, short duration of use of an electric refrigerator, low educational level, and family history of gastric cancer were computed using data from a case-control study conducted in Northern Italy.

    Between 1985 and June 1993 a total of 746 incident, histologically confirmed gastric cancer cases and 2,053 controls admitted to the same network of hospitals for acute, non-neoplastic, non-digestive-tract diseases, unrelated to long-term modifications of diet, were interviewed.

    The ARs were 48% for low intake of beta-carotene, 40% for high consumption of traditional foods, and 16% for low intake of vitamin C. Overall, these 3 dietary factors explained 73% of the gastric cancer cases in the population.

    Five percent of all cases were attributable to less than 30 years'use of an electric refrigerator, 15% to low educational level, and 5% to family history of gastric cancer.

    In individuals over age 60, a greater proportion of cases was attributable to traditional foods, low education and late adoption of electric refrigeration (58% vs. 32% aged under 60), suggesting that correlates of lower social class, influenced lifestyle and dietary habits more markedly in earlier than in more recent generations.
