A case-control study on diet and gastric cancer, carried out in selected areas of four regions of Spain (Aragon, Castile, Catalonia, and Galicia) in 1988 and 1989, included 354 cases of histologically confirmed gastric adenocarcinoma and 354 controls matched by age, sex, and area of residence.
Cases and controls were selected from 15 hospitals, representing most of the hospital facilities in the study areas.
Usual diet was estimated by means of a dietary history questionnaire administered by interview.
An increased risk of gastric cancer was observed for high consumption of exogenous nitrosamines (odds ratio=2.1 for the highest quartile of consumption versus the lowest; rhô for linear trend=0.007), nitrites, fat, and cholesterol.
