A multicentre hospital-based incident case-control study with 520 male gastric cancer cases aged <75 years and an equal number of age- and sex-matched controls without cancer has been carried out in Poland to assess potential risks due to smoking and alcohol consumption.
It was shown that after adjusting for socio-demographic and dietary confounders and vodka drinking, smoking cigarettes had no significant effect on risk.
The estimated relative risk (RR) increased to 2.27 (95% confidence interval [CI]:0.97-5.28) for intestinal cardia cancer for those who smoked cigarettes without filters.
The RR for stomach cancer grew as the frequency and amount of vodka drunk increased.
