A case-control study to evaluate risk factors of gastric cancer was carried out in areas with contrasting incidence rates in Sweden.
Face-to-face interviews were conducted with 338 of 456 eligible histologically confirmed gastric-cancer cases and 669 of 880 eligible control subjects, sampled from population registers and frequency-matched by age and gender.
We focused on 2 periods, adolescence and 20 years prior to interview.
The association of gastric-cancer risk with dietary habits during adolescence were similar to that found for the period 20 years before interview; high consumption of wholemeal bread, fruit and vegetables was associated with reduced gastric-cancer risk.
In addition, cheese, fish and tea had a protective effect during adolescence.
