To provide clues to the causes of liver cancer in China, we studied the correlation of certain dietary and biochemical markers with liver cancer mortality across 65 Chinese counties.
Mortality rates were significantly linked to the county-wide prevalence of hepatitis-B surface antigen positivity.
Rates were also higher in counties with high plasma levels of total cholesterol and high consumption of liquor, rapeseed oil, and mouldy corn, while inverse associations were observed for whear consumption.
