Salt and gastric cancer : a case-control study in Puerto Rico.
A total of 136 incident intestinal type gastric cancer cases and 151 age-comparable population controls were interviewed in Puerto Rico about their dietary habits with special emphasis on dietary salt consumption.
All interviews were conducted at home using a quantitative dietary frequency instrument.
The weekly intake of foods was estimated from the reported frequency of consumption and portion size according to a food model.
The dietary salt exposure was estimated from the intake of nine selected food items which are highly salted food items commonly consumed in Puerto Rico.
A strong (odds ratio [OR]=3.34) and statistically significant IP<0.001) unadjusted difference was found between cases and controls regarding dietary salt exposure.
