Stomach cancer kills more people than any cancers other than lung and liver. In the USA stomach cancer rates have decreased, but 5 year survival are still around 30%.
The American Cancer Institute for Cancer Research recommends:
1. Lose excess weight. People who are overweight or obese have a greater risk of stomach cancer.
2. Eat as little as possible of salt-preserved foods.
3. Limit alcohol intake. People who consume 3 drinks a day have a higher risk .
